A woman was found dead Saturday night in a home in Forest Lake, and a suspect was found dead in a nearby pole building, Forest Lake police said.
A 911 call about 8:15 p.m. summoned police to a home in the 18000 block of N. Henna Avenue in Forest Lake, where they found a woman dead inside the home. Police said a male suspect had fled to a nearby pole building, and a single gunshot was heard. The Washington County SWAT team went into the building and the person was found dead.
Forest Lake police Capt. Gregory Weiss said the woman was shot to death, and the man and woman knew each other. He said the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is notifying next of kin, and they anticipate releasing identities Monday morning.
Police said they were not looking for further suspects, and the public was in no danger.
