Part of a Norwich road was sealed off for several hours amid a police investigation.
A number of police cars and a Norfolk Constabulary Forensic Services van parked within an area cordoned off with blue and white police tape in Chambers Road in Mile Cross on Sunday morning.
The cordon blocked off the middle part of the street, with a number of houses within the area which has been sealed off by police.
Police have yet to release any details of what has happened, but confirmed they were called to the street at about 9pm on Saturday.
Police said investigations were continuing and further details would be released in due course.
One person who lives nearby said police had been knocking on doors, carrying out door to door enquiries, on Saturday night.
They added: "There were a lot of police shining torches in the bushes surrounding the cordon late last night.

"I have not heard any more this morning, but forensics were seen taking photos outside of the house.
"It is concerning as our road is normally so quiet and friendly, but after the stabbing up the top of the road last year it makes you wonder what on earth has gone on and if we should be worried."
As of around 3.45pm a spokesman for Norfolk Constabulary confirmed the seal had been lifted, but was unable to confirm further details of what had happened.
