ROCKVILLE, Minn. (KNSI) A homicide suspect is in critical condition after being shot by a deputy.
Stearns County Sheriff John Sanner says deputies were already en route to a home in Rockville for a report of a man with a gun around 4 a.m. Sunday when they received word that he had shot another man and fled on foot.
The victim, 30-year-old Jeffrey Schutz of Rockville, later died.
The sheriff says the suspect, 28-year-old Marcus Barshaw of Walker, was later spotted in the laundry room of a nearby apartment building. He says officers were entering the building when Barshaw fled out the rear.
Sanner says Barshaw refused an order to drop his weapon, so a deputy opened fire.
A nursing supervisor at St. Cloud Hospital says Barshaw is in critical condition.
