A man and a woman were found dead inside a Richmond Hill, Ont., home Sunday evening, York Regional Police said.

Emergency crews were called to the area of Bayview and 16th avenues — just north of Toronto — around 6 p.m. ET, police told CBC Toronto.

Police said the matter was initially reported as a firearm incident and homicide detectives have been notified.

Const. Laura Nicolle said the man and woman were both pronounced dead at the scene.

"The coroner has been notified and we are investigating," Nicolle said.

Ben Sangster, a spokesperson for York paramedics, said they sent one ambulance and a special response unit to the scene, but "no patients were transported."

Nicolle said there is no concern for public safety at the moment and police are not searching for any suspects.
