Detectives are investigating a possible homicide after a man and woman were found dead Tuesday night inside a residence at a Parkway mobile home park, Sacramento police said.

The two deceased individuals were located and pronounced dead at the scene after officers responded about 9:50 p.m. Tuesday to a 911 hang-up in the 6800 block of North Tranquility Drive, located within the Southgate Mobile Estates park, according to a news release by the Sacramento Police Department.

Spokesman Officer Marcus Basquez said the investigation remains active as of Wednesday morning, as detectives remained at the scene. No further details have been released regarding the causes of the deaths.

A group of about a dozen people who were gathered Wednesday morning outside the police cordon said they were relatives of the victims, a husband and wife who had gotten into an argument. The family members declined to give their names or comment further.

Basquez could not confirm whether the incident is being investigated as a domestic disturbance.

No arrests have been made and no suspect information has been released by police.

Detectives believe it was an isolated incident with no threat posed to the community, according to the news release.

The identity of the victims will be released by the coroner’s office pending notification of family.
