ST. PAUL, Minn. — Authorities say a Mille Lacs County sheriff’s deputy fatally shot a man who was part of a home invasion.
The Minnesota Department of Public Safety says four men broke into the home in Vineland late Thursday. One man carried a sawed-off shotgun. Several people fled into a back bedroom, barricaded the door and called 911.
As sheriff’s deputies arrived, two suspects were leaving and were arrested. One deputy found a third suspect in a bedroom pointing a shotgun at several people. When the man refused to drop his weapon, the deputy shot and killed him. The fourth suspect was arrested.
The man who died is identified as 20-year-old Jamison Anderson of Vineland. The deputy, 14-year veteran Daniel Mott, is on standard administrative leave.
The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating.
