Update 4:26 p.m. Mandan, N.D., police say three men and one woman were found dead early Monday morning in an apparent homicide. Next of kin has not been notified, as the victims have not been identified according to Mandan Police.

This is a multiple homicide scene, and police say they are actively searching for a suspect, but no information on who that suspect may be.
