Homicide investigators have been called in after a body was found inside a home in Surrey early Friday morning.

Firefighters and paramedics were called to a residence in the 7000 block of 144A Street at around 1:30 a.m. for a medical call. When they arrived, they found a deceased adult with injuries RCMP say are consistent with foul play.

Few details have been provided but Surrey Mounties say the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has been called in. The area around the scene has been cordoned off as officials investigate.

At the scene Friday, investigators could be seen working in the back lane of a house. Members of a construction crew working across the street said a family and two sets of tenants live in the home.

One neighbour said she and her sister woke up to police lights shining through their windows.

"It was really scary when I looked out the window," said Alyzah Noorani.

"There is a lot of children and families living here."
