MINNEAPOLIS — Three people were found dead Monday morning after a shooting at an in-home day care in Brooklyn Park, Minn., and police were looking for a suspect who fled on a bicycle.
At an afternoon news briefing, Police Inspector Todd Milburn said an unidentified client of the day care dropped off her child shortly before 6:30 Monday morning and spoke with at least one of the three adults. As she was leaving, she saw a man on foot near the house, Milburn said. As she drove off, she became suspicious and called the house and was in mid-conversation when the line went dead.
She went back to the home at 8117 College Park Dr. and found the three adults had been shot, he said. Her child was safe. She got the child out and called police.
There were no other children in the house, Milburn said.
Police did not identify the victims; however, a relative said they were 59-year-old DeLois Brown, who operated the day care, and Brown’s parents.
