Winnipeg police are expected to give more details today about two suspicious deaths that were discovered on Tuesday, including the death of a woman in an Island Lakes home.

Officers were called at around 5:30 p.m. CT Tuesday to a home in the 500 block of Island Shore Boulevard, where they found the woman deceased at the scene.

The Winnipeg Police Service's homicide unit is investigating.

Earlier in the day, police were called to a home in the 800 block of Home Street to investigate what they described as the sudden death of an adult.

In that case, officers would not confirm if they were involved in a homicide investigation, but homicide detectives were on scene.

Five men and a woman were seen being taken away from the Home Street residence.
