A murder investigation has been launched after four people were found dead at a house in Killamarsh.
Police were called at around 7.25am on Sunday to concerns for safety of those at an address on Chandos Crescent and one man has been arrested in connection with their deaths.
Police believe the incident to be isolated, and are not looking for anyone else in connection with their deaths.
Close family of the victims have now been made aware and specially trained officers are with them.
A spokesman said: “We would ask that people avoid speculation and allow for space at this distressing time.”
Detective Chief Inspector Rob Routledge, who is leading the investigation team, added: “We would really like to hear from anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious in the early hours of Sunday morning, or has any information which they think could help with our inquiries.
“No matter how small you think that information may be, please do get in touch with us.
“It is understandably a worrying time for the community, and we would like to thank them for their patience and understanding at this time. It was important to us that close relatives of those involved were informed before we could give further details about incident.
“Residents will continue to see a large police presence in the area, and patrols are being carried out for reassurance. If you do have any concerns, please don’t hesitate to speak to them.”
