There's a heavy police presence in the area.

"This is now a homicide investigation. Our homicide team has come in and they will be attending the scene shortly. We also had our Air One as well too, assisting. They were here trying to look for further evidence on the rooftops, because we still don't know exactly where the scene is. We have an idea. It's a rather large area and right now, we have everything cordoned off, everything secured. Right now, there's no threat to public safety," said Constable George Tudos, with Durham Regional Police.
