The incident happened just after 7 p.m. on Monday when Selkirk RCMP responded to a report of shots being fired at a home in East Selkirk, northeast of Winnipeg. When officers arrived, two men and one woman were found deceased outside the residence.

"Firearms were involved in this incident," said Chief Superintendent Mark Fisher, the Officer in Charge of Criminal Operations. "Based on the information known to investigators at this point in time, we do not believe that there is any ongoing risk or threat to public safety."

Fisher added that no suspect is believed to be at large, suggesting that at least one of those killed was the shooter. Details about the identities of those killed or a possible motive were not immediately released by officials.

The RCMP Serious Crime Unit and Forensic Identification officers have responded to the scene and are investigating the circumstances of the shooting. "The investigation is in its infancy and no further details will be provided at this time," the RCMP said in a statement.

Additional information is expected to be released on Tuesday morning.
