Five bodies and a dog were found at home in Minnesota on Wednesday, where police officers called it an “unimaginable tragedy.”
Duluth police said in a statement that unidentified people seemed to be involved.
The suspect was among the dead, a police spokesman said.
It was not clear how the five died. A spokeswoman, Kate Van Dele, declined to comment on the cause of death.
The agency said another police agency had warned authorities to those who had access to weapons in the house where the body was found.
Several law enforcement agencies have responded to homes north of downtown Duluth, the ministry said. During the search, police officers found five bodies and a dog, the agency said.
