GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Authorities were dispatched to a home Wednesday afternoon on an unknown medical call. 

Police found two people dead inside a home at the 500 block of Sheldon Avenue SE. 

Grand Rapids Police said Wednesday afternoon that it was too soon to know if there was a suspect or suspects in the case. The cause of death and identities of the victims were not released. 

"Anytime that you have two victims that's your first red flag, and that's what we do have. So, suspicious death comes right to the forefront," says Sgt. Cathy Williams with GRPD.

Police shut down Sheldon Avenue from Buckley Street to Pleasant Street as they investigated. 

Officers are working to make sure students from University Prep and other people who live in the area were able to get home safely. Drivers should avoid the area if possible.

A family dog was removed from the scene unharmed while police gathered evidence.
