Police say two men found dead in a home in Hope, B.C., on Sunday died in a murder-suicide — not a double homicide as previously suspected.

Homicide investigators say Alec Lamb, 26, and Tylor Insley, 29, knew each other. Both men were found dead in a home in the 69100 block of Othello Road.

Police have not said which man they believe killed the other, or why, but have said the public is not at risk.

“We know that within smaller communities an incident such as this can instill a great deal of fear in the public," said Sgt. Jennifer Pound.

"IHIT would like to ensure the public that this was not a random attack, but a targeted shooting between two males that were known to each other.”
