NANAIMO, B.C. - One man is dead and another is being questioned by Mounties after a late-night incident in Nanaimo, B.C.

Few details have been released, but Staff Sgt. John Blaase confirms an officer was called to a home at around 10:30 Wednesday night.

One man was found outside the house and the body was found inside.

Blaase says officers had to wait for several hours for legal approval to enter the home and begin to search for evidence.

He says the man found at the scene remains in custody as police try to determine what happened.

Blaase has not indicated how the victim died or whether the two men knew each other. (CKNW)
