The victims have been identified as 50-year-old Shu-Min Wu and 39-year-old Ying Ying Sun.
Vancouver’s Emergency Response Team was briefly deployed to the neighbourhood Sunday morning to search a house near the crime scene, as investigators feared there could be additional victims inside.
The targeted murders are the first and second homicides in Vancouver this year.
Vancouver Police are asking anyone with information or dash-cam video from the area to contact the VPD Homicide Unit at 604-717-2500.
