MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Police say five family members, including three children, are dead in a home in a Minneapolis suburb in an apparent murder-suicide.

South Lake Minnetonka Police Chief Mike Siitari says police 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."

Authorities have not released the names of the victims. But the father's business posted a notice online saying the victims were Brian Short and his family. Short is the founder of AllNurses.com.

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