BROOKLYN PARK, Minnesota — Three adults were killed early Monday at an in-home day care in a suburb of Minneapolis, and a nearby college was locked down as police searched for a suspect who fled on a bicycle.

Police released few details about the deaths in Brooklyn Park. Inspector Todd Milburn said no one else was injured, but wouldn’t say whether any children were present during the attack about 6:30 a.m.

Neighbors of the Brooklyn Park day care center said police told them to stay home because a gunman was on the loose. No arrests have been made.

A Hennepin County crime lab van was parked outside the house in the middle-class suburb a few hours after the attack. Police tape was stretched around the house, a gray split-level in a modest neighborhood with children’s toys in the fenced backyard. A small group of people stood in the street several houses down, sobbing and hugging each other.
