MINOR, N.D. (AP) - No arrests have been made in a series of North Dakota shootings that police say killed a mother, two of her children and her boyfriend.
Authorities do say they've questioned a "person of interest" in the case but won't say whether that person is being held or what may have led to the shootings.
And they're insisting that residents aren't in danger.
Police say they found the body of a 19-year-old female victim after receiving a call about "a woman down and bloody" at an apartment Friday afternoon.
Less than an hour later, a similar call came in about a boy lying on the floor bleeding from the mouth in a trailer southeast of town. Police responded and found three more victims, including that of a 13-year-old boy.
Minot, about 100 miles north of Bismarck, has a population of about 36,000 and is home to the Minot Air Force Base.
