HARVEY TOWNSHIP, Minn. (AP) - Sheriff’s officials say the deaths of a teenage brother and sister found fatally shot at a home in Meeker County were a murder-suicide.

Sheriff Brian Cruze says 17-year-old David Cunningham shot his 15-year-old sister, Jessica Cunningham, before turning the gun on himself.

Authorities say the teens’ father came home to find their bodies. Deputies were called to the home in Harvey Township Monday afternoon.

David Cunningham was a student at Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City High School, but was home because there was no school that day. His sister was a former student at the school but had been schooling online at home.

Authorities don’t have a motive for the shooting.
