“When they arrived on scene and entered this residence, they located two deceased subjects inside this residence,” said CCPD Sgt. Clint Pollock. “They secured the scene, contacted our investigators to respond.”
Clint said investigators do not have any other details.
Even though the scene is close to the SUU campus, it’s an area that isn’t necessarily all student housing.
