The Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit (VIIMCU) are investigating a homicide at a home on Battleford Avenue.

The incident occurred on Wednesday, September 8th, at approximately 11:30 a.m., when Saanich Police responded to a 911 call at the home.

Responding officers located a deceased man in the residence.

Saanich Police say that the name of the deceased will not be released until investigators confirm the identity and contact the family.

No details surrounding the crime were released. The home remained behind police tape on Friday as the investigation continues.

“Investigators believe this is an isolated incident and the subjects would have been known to one another,” Saanich Police said in a statement.

The location of the homicide is in close proximity to an earlier incident where a man was found seriously injured along the Trans Canada Highway near Uptown last week.

Investigators are asking anyone who may have information surrounding the incident to call the VIIMCU at (250) 380-6211.
