DENVER -- A woman and young child were found dead Saturday evening inside an apartment in Adams County, the Adams County Sheriff’s Office said.

A neighbor near the home at 2821 W. 66th Place called police after a woman emerged from the apartment in a panic.

Witnesses told FOX31 Denver that the victims were a toddler and his grandmother, but police did not confirm this. However, police confirmed Sunday they had launched a homicide investigation.

"A comprehensive investigation is being conducted at this very time," Sheriff Doug Darr said. "There is much to do."

It was not immediately clear what had occurred inside the apartment.
