Police say five people, including three children, are dead in a home in a western Minneapolis suburb in an apparent murder-suicide.

South Lake Minnetonka Police Chief Mike Siitari tells KSTP-TV that police were called to the home when no one was seen or heard from for several days. Siitari says the children did not show up for school this week.

Police did not immediately return calls from The Associated Press.
