June 21, 2021
In what St. Cloud police say was a random incident, a 45-year-old man shot another man to death in his doorway early Sunday.
The 45-year-old suspect from Duluth is held in Stearns County jail on homicide charges following the 6:16 a.m. shooting in the 2600 block of Island View Drive, where police say the man was shot multiple times while standing inside the doorway of a residence. Officers observed that the shots had appeared to come from outside the residence. The victim was taken to a hospital where he died.
Police used a dog to attempt to track the suspect, but shortly after 7 a.m., a witness called 911 to report a man walking around with a handgun. Officers arrested the suspect and recovered the handgun, and the suspect admitted to officers that he shot the victim, police said.
