BROOKLYN PARK  (AP) -  Police say three people have been shot and killed at a home in a northwest Minneapolis suburb and the gunman is still on the loose.

Police Inspector Todd Milburn says three people were found shot to death inside the home in Brooklyn Park. The shooting happened about 6:30 a.m. Monday.

Later Monday, police tape surrounded the home, a modest gray split-level.

Milburn didn't respond to calls from The Associated Press.

The nearby Hennepin Technical College was locked down as a precaution.
