Five people and a dog They were found dead in a Minnesota home on Wednesday, in what a police officer called an “unimaginable tragedy,” according to WCCO.

The people, who have not been identified at this time pending notification of their families, appear to be related, the Duluth Police Department said in a statement.

A man who is suspected of causing these killings because he was apparently in a mental health crisis was among the dead, a police spokeswoman said.

It has not been reported how the five people died. The spokeswoman, Kate Van Daele, declined to comment on the causes of death.

The finding came after police received a report of a man experiencing a mental health crisis, authorities said.

Duluth Police Chief Mike Tusken said police in nearby Hermantown received an initial request to check on someone in that city around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday.

The investigation led them to contact Duluth police. Authorities eventually went to a Duluth home, where they found the bodies. Duluth is about 150 miles (241 kilometers) north of Minneapolis, on the shore of Lake Superior.

Police said officers “obtained information that the subject had access to weapons” and multiple law enforcement agencies were called in to assist. The area was searched before authorities entered the home.

Authorities reported that investigations continue.
