MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Dakota County Sheriff’s Office says they’re investigating a suspicious death in Greenvale Township.
The incident began at about 4:45 p.m. Friday, with authorities being summoned to reports of a burglary in progress on the 31500 block of Foliage Avenue.
An acquaintance of the person who lived there stopped by because they hadn’t heard from him in a few days. When that person arrived, three people fled the residence in a car.
Police arrived at the scene to find a man dead in the home.
The sheriff said that two suspects were arrested after authorities found the vehicle described, but a third person fled on foot. He is described as about 30 years old, 6 feet in height and about 150 pounds. He is said to have been wearing dark clothes and had a ponytail with his head shaved on both sides.
Police believe that the suspects knew the man prior to the burglary and that the incident was not random. The investigation is ongoing.
Police did not identify the victim or say the manner of death.
