Authorities in Sherburne County say a mother and her two children have been found dead in a home in Zimmerman, and police are not looking for suspects.

Sheriff Joel Brott says the bodies were discovered Sunday about 10 a.m. by a family member. He says all three people were dead when deputies arrived a few minutes after the discovery was reported.

The dead were identified Monday as 35-year-old Stephanie Shields, 7-year-old Nolan Shields and 6-year-old Josephine Shields. The bodies have been taken to the Ramsey County medical examiner's office for autopsies.

Zimmerman is about 40 miles northwest of Minneapolis.
