Police roped off eastbound lanes on 41st Avenue between Inverness and Sherbrooke streets and cordoned off several houses in the neighbourhood, tweeting the closure around 8 a.m.

Investigators could be seen Saturday morning marking evidence outside the homes, including what appeared to be a large blood stain on the sidewalk.

In an emailed statement to Global News, BC Emergency Health Services confirmed four ambulances attended a 1200-block residence of 41st Avenue at 6:45 a.m. Three patients were brought to the hospital at the time.

In a news conference that afternoon, Const. Tania Visintin said she could not provide any details beyond the fact that a “serious police incident” had taken place.

The streets in the area reopened around 2:40 p.m.
