2 dead in Eden Prairie apartment shooting

Posted: Updated:
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -

Eden Prairie police found a woman and a man dead Saturday after a shooting at Eden Place Apartments, prompting an evacuation of the building that lasted several hours.

A 911 call was placed at 7:15 a.m. after gunshots were heard inside an apartment at 8680 Magnolia Trail, but responding officers were unable to get a response from the occupants of the unit.

As a result, the Eden Prairie Emergency Response Unit was called to make entry. Meanwhile, officers went door-to-door to evacuate the other 63 units as a precaution. Residents have since been allowed to return home.

Police found a woman's body in the apartment late Saturday morning and later used a Bloomington bomb squad robot to find a man's body. They also located weapons, Bengtson said, but added that she couldn't confirm what type.

Investigators weren't immediately able to say whether the deaths were a murder-suicide or double-homicide, police spokeswoman Katie Bengtson said; however, authorities are not currently looking for suspects.

The identities of the two people and the cause of death will be released through the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office.

Information from the Associated Press was used in this report.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
