FORT WAYNE, Ind. — Authorities say the bodies of four people were found in a northeastern Indiana home following a report of shots being fired inside the residence.

Allen County Sheriff's Department Cpl. Adam Griffith said law enforcement responded about 9 p.m. Monday and medics confirmed that the four were dead just northwest of Fort Wayne after officers saw them through a window.

Griffith said one person described as a witness was uninjured at the home and investigators interviewed that person.

The investigation was in the preliminary stages Monday night, but authorities didn't believe there was any current danger to the public.

Circumstances of the deaths weren't immediately given.
