Warren police said a woman and a 6-year-old boy were found shot to death Thursday in a house in the southwest section of the city.

Police Commissioner Bill Dwyer said officers discovered the bodies when they went to a single-family house in the 2000 block of Otis Avenue for a welfare check after 10 a.m. The home is near 9 Mile and Dequindre.

Dwyer said the woman is believed to be in her 20s. He did not provide additional details about the victims or the circumstances or motive for their deaths.

Warren police are working with Detroit police as the killings may be connected to the discovery of a man’s body in a car on Hyde Park Drive on Detroit’s east side Thursday morning

Dwer said police are executing a search warrant at the scene of the double homicide in Warren and were attempting to notify relatives.

No one was in custody Thursday afternoon.

The double slaying is the second homicide investigation this week for Warren police. On Tuesday night, a 32-year-old man was shot to death by another man after being lured outside a residence in the 21400 block of La Salle Boulevard, police said.
