Four people are dead in an apparent triple-murder suicide in Minnesota. The tragedy began Sunday morning after Minneapolis police responded to reports of shots fired at a home. They found two boys dead at the scene, which sparked an extended hostage situation.

A SWAT team set up a perimeter around the house and a bomb squad was on scene. Police found two adults, including the suspect, dead inside the house.

Investigators said this may be a domestic incident, but did not detail the suspect’s relationship to the victims.

“This is a horrific scene. This is a horrific call. There’s just…it’s tough to put this into words. You have two children that are out playing in the snow and they’re killed. There’s no sense to that.”

—  John Elder, Minneapolis Police Department spokesman

If the incident does turn out to be domestic related, it would make it the third homicide of its kind since Thanksgiving night.
