Milwaukee police said the victims range in age from 14-41.
Authorities say all of the victims knew each other.
Officials said they received a call this morning from a man saying his family was dead. That man is now in custody.
Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett was at the scene following the tragedy. He said there is a child survivor in this incident, who he believes is 3 years old.
"There’s a lot of stress,” said Mayor Barrett. “The living conditions here-this is obviously a poor neighborhood and I don’t know how many people lived in this house. I don’t know if there was more than one family. But again, this is a stressful period and we’ll have to wait and see exactly what happened here.”
