MILWAUKEE (AP) — Milwaukee police say the six people found dead in a Milwaukee home apparently had been shot.

According to Sgt. Efrain Cornejo, the victims had injuries that are suspected to have been caused by gunfire.

Police responded about 3:45 p.m. Sunday to assist with a welfare check at the residence where the victims were found. They discovered five bodies.

The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office tweeted early Monday that the body of an additional person, a man, was recovered from the home.

The identities of the dead, including five men and one woman, were pending.
