CALGARY - Police are investigating the deaths of a woman and a child found inside a Calgary home.

Officers say they received a call from a neighbour and discovered the woman and a boy, about eight years old, in medical distress.

They were soon pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say a man, other children and some extended family members who may have also lived in the home have been found and are safe.

A suspicious vehicle was spotted leaving and Mounties later pulled it over on a highway about 80 kilometres north near Didsbury.

Police are talking with the driver, but don't know yet if the person is related to the case.
