A man apparently shot and critically wounded a woman before killing himself Tuesday in Montevideo, in southwestern Minnesota.
According to police in the Chippewa County town, authorities received several 911 calls late Tuesday morning reporting gunshots coming from the area of a house on S. 4th Street.
Officers found Angela Haugerud, 41, who lived in the home, lying on the front steps, conscious but with two gunshot wounds. Inside the home, they found David Schwartz, 55, of Foley, dead of a single gunshot wound.
Haugerud, who was conscious, was taken to the Montevideo Hospital and later flown to HCMC in Minneapolis.
The Anoka County medical examiner will conduct an autopsy on Schwartz.
Montevideo police, the Chippewa County sheriff, the State Patrol and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension are investigating.
