ORONO, Minn. (AP) — The daughter of a prominent Minneapolis-area OB/GYN says it was her father's body police found after an officer-involved shooting that left another man dead in her father's yard.

Stacey Larson told television stations WCCO and KARE that her father, Dr. Stephen Larson, was found dead in his Orono home Friday night.

The Hennepin County sheriff's office says Orono police officers dispatched to the home just before 9 p.m. Friday encountered a man in the yard armed with a handgun. It says shots were fired and the man died at the scene. Officers found another man later identified as Larson by his daughter inside the home. He had been shot.

Police hadn't released the men's names or disclosed a possible motive as of Saturday.
