A Jamestown man suspected of being involved in the deaths of two city residents has been arrested in Cattaraugus County... but, police are offering little more information late today.  City Police Chief Harry Snellings updated their investigation from the scene at 235 Barrows St late this afternoon.  Snellings says officers were called to the eastside location shortly after 8 this morning.  He says they received a call of a "suspcious situation," and upon checking the situation, found the two people dead inside.  Snellings says the suspect... 51 year-old Allen Witrucke... was found with his car -- a 2009 Chevy Impala -- in Olean about mid-afternoon.  First Assistant District Attorney John Zurowski would not say when specific charges may be placed against the suspect.  Snellings says City Police investigators have gone to Olean to interview Witrucke... but, he won't say if the suspect has said anything yet.  He says they are not identifying the victims yet because not all of the next of kin have been notified.  If you have any information on the case... you're asked to call Jamestown police at 483-7537.  You can also call their Tip-line at 483-TIPS... that's 483-8477.
