Update: Man Dead, 2 Deputies Hurt in McLeod County
WINSTED (AP) - Authorities say a man suspected of shooting two deputies
in the central Minnesota town of Winsted is dead.
The shootings happened around midday Monday after the deputies went to the home
to serve an arrest warrant. After hours of getting no further response, officers
sent a robot and drones inside the house around 6:30 p.m. and found the man
dead, McLeod County Sheriff Tim Langenfeld said.
"It's not the ending we wanted," Langenfeld said. "We would have liked to see a
successful ending with no one else injured or dead."
The two deputies were taken to a hospital where they were treated and released.
Langenfeld did not say how the suspect died. He said he didn't know if any
officers fired their weapons during the incident. The Bureau of Criminal
Apprehension is investigating.
