Two men found dead in White Bear Township home

A SWAT team had been sent to the property after a report of shots fired.

Authorities say two men were found dead at a home in White Bear Township, having received earlier reports of shots fired.

A SWAT team was sent to the property in the 5400 block of Centerville Road, northwest of White Bear Lake, at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, according to the Ramsey County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies had earlier been told that someone was inside the house with a gun, and people were leaving the home when they arrived at the scene.

Attempts were made to make contact with those inside, with no success. When police eventually entered, they found two men dead inside.

No information as to the men's identities nor how they died has been officially released.

Citing dispatch radio, the Star Tribune reports that the two men are brothers, and there were at least six people in the house at the time of the shooting.

The newspaper says that the shooter also shot a dog before himself, in what is being considered a murder-suicide.
