DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Des Moines police found two bodies in a home after responding to a 911 call from a child who believed his mother had been injured.

The child called 911 just after 1 p.m. Wednesday to report his mother had been hurt, prompting officers and medics to go to the home on the city’s south side. Sgt. Paul Parizek says the first-responders found the bodies of a woman and a man, and both had traumatic injuries.

Parizek says a homicide investigation was underway but there didn’t appear to be a threat to the community.

The names of those killed weren’t released so relatives could be notified.
