Officials have identified the three family members who were shot to death in their Chisago County home over the weekend, and they also disclosed that a "person of interest" in the shootings was found dead elsewhere a day earlier.
Found dead Sunday morning in their Fish Lake Township home on Brunswick Road were Darrell J. Mattson, 73, and Denise L. Mattson, 68, and their 47-year-old son Kirk P. Mattson, according to the Midwest Medical Examiner's Office.
All three suffered "multiple gunshot wounds," Justin Wood, chief deputy for the Chisago County Sheriff's Office, said in a statement Tuesday. The gun used to shoot the three has not been found, Wood said.
