A Minneapolis SWAT team has surrounded a house where officials say a man is barricaded after shooting and killing two children early Sunday morning.

Police responded to a south Minneapolis home around 10 a.m. Sunday after someone responded that shots had been fired, police spokesman John Elder told the Daily News.

Two youths who had been “playing in the snow outside” were found unresponsive in the yard, Elder said.

“Officers got the youths transported into a safe space,” he told The News, but both died at the scene.

The suspect, believed to be an adult male, was inside the house and SWAT negotiators are “attempting contact.”
