EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) Eden Prairie police say two people are dead in a shooting incident that prompted the evacuation of an apartment building for several hours.

Police received a 911 call of shots fired in a unit at the Eden Place complex just after 7 a.m. Saturday.

The Eden Prairie SWAT team and officers from other nearby suburban departments surrounded the building. Police spokeswoman Katie Bengtson says all the other units in the building were evacuated as a precaution.

The body of an adult female was found late Saturday morning. Officers later used a robot to find the body of an adult male inside.

Bengtson says investigators are trying to determine what happened and aren't ready to say if it was a murder-suicide or double-homicide, but they're not looking for suspects.
