Three people were killed this morning when someone opened fire at an in-home day care in a Minneapolis suburb, and then rode away on a BMX bicycle, the AP reports. The incident prompted a lockdown at a nearby technical school. It's unclear if any children were present during the shooting, which occurred at around 6:30am, but police confirmed that all three victims were adults. The shooter is still at large, and Fox affiliate KMSP 9 says the police description of him is "vague." (Read more shooting stories.)
