ORONO, Minn. (AP) — The Hennepin County Medical Examiner has identified the man fatally shot by police outside the Orono home where a Twin Cities physician was found dead.
Dr. Stephen Larson was found dead in his home Friday night. When officers arrived they encountered a man in the yard armed with a handgun. Police say shots were fired and 30-year-old Ted Hoffstrom, of St. Anthony, was killed.
