Police say five family members, 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 says police w were called to the home Thursday to check on the family and found the bodies. Siitari wouldn't release any information on how the family members died, but said there appeared to be "no threat or danger to the community."

The names of the victims have not been released.

Aerial footage of the scene showed an upscale home in Greenwood, a village of a few hundred people on the shore of Lake Minnetonka, about 20 miles west of Minneapolis.

Greenwood Mayor Debra Kind told the AP she did not know the family but called it "very upsetting news."
