Police are investigating a suspected murder-suicide in Forest Lake after a woman and a man were found dead on Saturday evening.

Officers received an abandoned 911 call from the 18000 block of Henna Avenue North around 8:15 p.m., and arrived at a home to find a woman dead inside a house.

A male suspect had fled to a nearby pole building prior to police arriving, with a single gunshot then heard from the building.

A Washington County SWAT team entered the pole building and found the suspect dead inside.

"There is no danger to the public and we are not looking for any suspects," the Washington County Sheriff's Office said.

The identity of the man and woman have not been released at this stage.
