PRESS RELEASE - ICR #23007496
The Chisago County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the circumstances surrounding the shooting deaths of three persons found this morning in their Fish Lake Township home.
Deputies went to the home on Brunswick Road around 8:00 a.m. Sunday after a family member contacted the agency requesting a welfare check because they had not been able to reach the home’s occupants.
When deputies arrived, they located three individuals deceased from apparent gunshot wounds. The Chisago County Sheriff’s Investigations Unit and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) responded to the scene. Based on what they’ve learned thus far investigators believe that this was not a random incident.
The Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office will conduct autopsies on the three victims to determine cause and manner of death. The names of the deceased will be released once family notifications are complete.
The Chisago County Sheriff’s Office will provide additional updates as the investigation progresses.
