Authorities are investigating an attempted murder-suicide that has left one dead in northwestern Minnesota Wednesday night. The Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 57000 block of County Highway 56 in New York Mills at about 9:13 p.m. Wednesday after a report from a 21-year-old female that gunshots had been fired at a residence. When authorities arrived, they found two men who had been shot.
A Bertha woman is recovering at Hennepin County Medical Center after her significant other tried to shoot and kill her last Friday. The shooter took his own life before Todd County Sheriff’s deputies responded.
