“Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the late wife and child, as well as the officers and paramedics who were the first to arrive at what was an incredibly challenging scene.

“Special detectives are working to find out what happened and one man is in custody.

“While they are receptive to what is happening, I would like to reassure those living in the area that at this time there is nothing to indicate that anyone else was involved in this incident.
