On October 14, at approximately 7:09 pm, Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Deputies responded along with other officers to an address in Oak Lawn Township on a disturbance taking place involving shots fired.

As law enforcement arrived on scene, contact was made with an adult male subject in possession of a handgun. Law enforcement witnessed the male enter the residence and a single gunshot was heard. After confirming all other parties involved in the incident were safely outside the residence, an unmanned drone was flown inside the residence, and the male subject was located deceased of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

This incident is currently under active investigation. The deceased’s body was transported to the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s office for autopsy.
