MONTGOMERY, Minn. (AP) — One man is dead and a teenager in custody after a shooting in south-central Minnesota.

The Le Sueur County sheriff's office says 47-year-old Richard Nelson was found dead from a gunshot wound to his head Monday night.

Officers were paged to the home in rural Montgomery about 11 p.m.

Investigators located the suspect and arrested the 18-year-old man without incident.

The investigation continues, but authorities are confident there are no other suspects and no risk to the public.
