2 women found shot to death in Minneapolis apartment

Police are now looking for suspects in the double homicide.

Two women are dead after a Saturday night shooting in the Northeast neighborhood of Minneapolis. 

According to a news release from the police department, their bodies were discovered by officers responding to a report of "sound of gunshots" at an apartment complex around 10:30 p.m.

The apartments are located on the 300 block of 2nd Avenue SE, a flew blocks away from the Saint Anthony Main area.

"The suspect, or suspects, fled the scene prior to officer’s arrival," the release says.

So far, no one has been arrested, and few details about the shooting have been released.

Neither of the victims has been identified, but the Star Tribune describes them as "two middle-age women," per a police spokesperson. 

Authorities are asking anyone with information about the crime to submit an anonymous tip to CrimeStoppers of Minnesota, by calling 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or visiting www.CrimeStoppersMN.org.
