LANHAM, Md. (AP) Prince George's County police are investigating the deaths of four people found in a Lanham home.

Police spokeswoman Lt. Tammy Sparkman says police received a call about an assault at about 2:40 a.m. Friday. Sparkman says when officers responded to a home in the 6800 block of Third Street they discovered the bodies inside.

She says all four were pronounced dead on the scene. Police cars were parked Friday morning on the block where the bodies were found. Yellow police tape was stretched across half of the street and tied to the fencepost at one home. A white Crime Solvers van was also parked in the tree-lined neighborhood of modest rambler houses that includes Sovereign Grace Baptist church.

Police Chief Roberto Hylton is expected to speak at the scene Friday morning.
