SURREY, B.C. - The RCMP are investigating what they call a suspicious and sudden death at a home in Surrey over the weekend.

Police say they responded to a call early Saturday morning about a 57-year-old man who was found dead by his roommates.

Officers have arrested one man in connection with the incident.

Homicide investigators interviewed the man before releasing him without charges pending further investigation.
