MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Police say robbery may be the motive behind a fatal shooting at a Minneapolis residence.

Officers responded to a report of shots fired at the home shortly before 7 p.m. Monday. They found the body of an adult male.

Authorities say the suspects fled before police arrived. Officials say a preliminary investigation indicates the victim and shooter knew each other and that robbery may have sparked a confrontation.

Homicide detectives interviewed a number of people at the scene. The victim has not been identified.
