An arrest has been made after an older woman was found dead in a Ranchlands home.

Calgary police called it a “domestic-related homicide.” Police took a man into custody as soon as they arrived on scene. No charges have yet been laid. 

Emergency crews arrived at the northwest Calgary home on Ranchridge Drive just before 1:30 p.m. MT.

Neighbour Steven Iovan says a couple in their late 50s or early 60s have lived in the house for about a decade.

He says the couple is nice and quiet, and noted that their son had recently moved back in.

Iovan also said that he saw an officer with a shotgun running down the street.
