2 found dead in Minneapolis home

MINNEAPOLIS - Police say two people were found dead in a Minneapolis home on Sunday afternoon.

Officers responded to the home on the 2000 block of Polk Street NE at about 3:30 p.m. after a call about someone threatening another person with a gun.

Police say when they arrived they could not make contact with anyone inside, so they set up a perimeter and called the Hostage Negotiation Team. That team was attempting to make contact with the people inside, when they heard a gunshot. Police entered and found a man and a woman deceased.

Police say they are not looking for any suspects. The names of the people involved will be released by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office.

Police tell KARE 11 at this point they believe the incident to be a murder-suicide, but the medical examiner will make the final determination.
