Police investigating deaths of two in Vancouver

Vancouver police are investigating the death of two people found inside a home in the Vancouver Heights neighborhood.

Police issued a statement Friday saying that officers were dispatched at 10:18 p.m. Thursday to a residence in the 8400 block of Mt. Olympus Avenue on a report of two injured people inside.

When officers arrived, they found a man and woman dead inside the residence, according to police.
The statement said there is not believed to be any threat to the general public. The Vancouver Police Department Major Crimes Unit is investigating.

Further information about the deaths was not released.

By Friday morning, there were pieces of crime scene tape in the yard of a ranch-style home at the end of Mt. Olympus Avenue. A fence gate was ajar, and just inside, a shed with a broken window and shattered glass on the ground could be seen.

Farther down the avenue, Charlie Turney said he had looked out his front window around 10:30 p.m. Thursday to check on his property. As usual, the street was quiet, he said. Turney didn’t hear or see anything suspicious.

When he left his house around 5:20 a.m., Turney spotted two Vancouver police officers on the street but nothing else.

Turney said he doesn’t often see officers in the neighborhood; it’s a quiet area.

“What you see right now, this is it,” he said.
