Police in Nijmegen found the bodies of two people inside a house on Berg en Dalseweg late Monday afternoon. A neighbor at the scene believed two men were living inside the house: a 70-year-old man, and his son, 45, De Gelderlander reported.

A dog was also found alive inside the house. It is not yet known if a crime took place.

Authorities responded to the scene after a family member tried ringing the doorbell, but received no response. The bodies were found at around 4 p.m. just after police made entry into the home, newswire ANP reported.

Police used social media service Twitter to confirm the discovery of the bodies at around 4:15 p.m., saying that the situation was unclear and victim identification was not completed. Two community police officers responded to the scene to assist the public in the area.

The shutters of the house were drawn shut, and police tape surrounded the entire property, the Gelderlander stated.
