Police are seeking a suspect and a motive after four people were found dead at a business in central North Dakota.

The bodies were found at RJR Maintenance and Management, a property management and rentals company in the Bismarck suburb of Mandan, at around 7 a.m. Monday.

On Tuesday, Mandan identified the victims as business owner Robert Fakler, 52, and employees Adam Fuehrer, 42, and husband-and-wife William Cobb, 50, and Lois Cobb, 45.

No suspects have been taken into custody and at this stage there's no information released as to how the four were killed and the motive behind it.

However, police say there is no wider danger to the general public is in danger as they believe it was a targeted killing.

No weapons have been recovered from the scene. Police are now asking anyone with information to call them on 701-667-3250, particularly if they have any video surveillance from the area.

RJR Management has thanked the public for its support since Monday, and is currently closed as staff grieve the loss of its owner and their co-workers.
