An investigation is ongoing into two deaths on Cambridge Street South, near Bronson and Carling in Ottawa's downtown. Police classify these deaths as suspicious.

The area is mainly home to students of Carleton University, but the person who was killed was in his early 20s, a resident told CTV Ottawa.

He had been attacked recently and was in fear of his life, the neighbour added, and lived alone in the practically empty three-unit building.

No further details about age, location or cause of death are available yet.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at 613-233-8477 (TIPS).
