A shooting near Rochester late Sunday left a 70-year-old man dead and another man under arrest, authorities said.

The gunfire occurred just east of Byron about 10:45 p.m., according to the Olmsted County Sheriff's Office.

A vehicle pulled up to a residence in the 5700 block of County Road 105, and a man went out to investigate, the Sheriff's Office said in a statement. The man was shot once in the upper body and died at the scene, the statement continued.

A man tried to run away but quickly was arrested, a statement read, and a gun was recovered in a nearby structure, according to the Sheriff's Office.

The statement continued, "There is no further threat to the public."

The state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is assisting with the investigation and still was at the scene well into Monday morning, according to sheriff's Capt. James Schueller .

The Sheriff's Office has declined to disclose the identity of the man who was shot, other than to state his age. Nor has the Sheriff's Office released a possible motive for the shooting, but "further updates may come out later today," the captain said.

The man jailed is 31 years old and from nearby Kasson, Minn. He is awaiting possible charges, Schueller said. The Star Tribune generally does not identify suspects before they are charged.

Byron is a town of about 5,500 residents and is 11 miles west of Rochester.
