Authorities Identify Man Killed by Deputy in Lakeville
LAKEVILLE, Minn. (AP) -- Authorities have identified a man who was killed in an officer-involved shooting in Lakeville.
The Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office says 36-year-old Kent Krueger died of multiple gunshot wounds in the Friday confrontation with Dakota County sheriff's deputies.
The sheriff's office said earlier that deputies were serving an emergency order for protection that called for the man to be removed from the home when he opened fire. One deputy returned fire, killing the man.
Authorities say the man was wanted on a warrant for assaulting a peace officer. The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating the case.
