RCMP in British Columbia's central Interior are investigating two fatal attacks, one in 100 Mile House and the other in Valemount, but they say there is nothing to suggest the public is at risk.
Officers with the North District Major Crime Unit responded to reports of a shooting Sunday at a home that is well known to police in 100 Mile House.
Cpl. Madonna Saunderson says in a news release that an adult male was found dead in the home, but his name and age have not been released.
Just an hour after the first call, Saunderson says Mounties were called to a report of a deceased man in Valemount, more than 300 kilometres to the east.
The second victim is a man in his 60s and Saunderson has not said how he died.
She says both deaths are being treated as homicides but police have not linked them.
