A street in Morley has been cordoned off and a murder probe is underway after a man in his 50s was found dead on Monday night.
Police spokesman Adam Brouwer said police were called to a house on Halvorson Road just after 8pm where they found the deceased man. Police have since blocked both ends of the street.
A 36-year-old man is currently assisting police with their inquiries.
Nine News Perth reporter Michael Stamp said while police remained tight-lipped about what had unfolded, forensic officers were checking the shoes of paramedic staff over and over again and the city’s ranger was also called in.
