Authorities on Thursday identified the man who was fatally shot while in the road north of the Twin Cities in what appears to be a dispute between neighbors.
Donn Allan Johnson, 62, who, along with the suspected gunman, lived near where the shooting occurred in Chisago County, died about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday on Lindo Trail, the Sheriff’s Office said.
A 42-year-old man was arrested at the scene near Sunrise Lake in North Chisago Lake Township and is being held on suspicion of second-degree murder. Authorities have not revealed a motive for the violence.
Sheriff Rick Duncan said that Johnson was killed “right in the middle of the road.”
