RICHMOND, B.C. — Police say two men and two women who were found dead at a home after a shooting in Richmond, B.C., were from the same family.

Sgt. David Lee of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says the identities of the four people aren’t yet being released.

He says one of the deceased had a valid firearms licence and access to guns.

Lee says investigators have confirmed that the shooting was an isolated incident and no one else was involved.

He say the deaths are not a result of intimate-partner violence.

The two men and two women were found in the home Tuesday, although police have said they believed the shootings happened on Monday evening.

Lee says the family members had no known associations to criminal activities.
