Pasco police have arrested one man in connection with a death Tuesday night at the Sundance Mobile Home Park in east Pasco.
Officers were called just before 7 p.m., and the body of a man was found just outside the front door of one of the units at 925 N. Elm St., space 72.
Capt. Jim Raymond said neighbors saw and heard two men scuffling in front of the home.
"Witnesses said they saw one of the men entering the residence," he said. Officers who knocked on the door met a man who was questioned and then arrested.
Raymond refused to identify the man arrested, or provide the name of the deceased man.
"The prosecuting attorney is here, and the coroner has been contacted," he said.
Jose Valenzuela, 32, who lives in the park, told the Herald he was taking the garbage out when a neighbor told him someone had been killed. But he said he didn't hear any commotion earlier.
Raymond didn't give any information about a weapon being found, and Valenzuela said he didn't believe a gun was involved because no one he had talked to mentioned hearing gunfire.
Lourdes Health Network owns several homes in the park -- including the one where the investigation was taking place -- and uses them as supported housing for people with mental illnesses.
Lourdes spokeswoman Melanie Johnston told the Herald people who live in the homes are "highly supervised," with someone on site every day to monitor the residents.
She did not know whether the residents were supervised at night.
At least four Pasco police cars and a mobile response van responded to the crime scene.
Raymond said officers would remain until a warrant was obtained so the home could be searched.
"We believe we have everybody who was involved," he said.
