A second person has been arrested following the killing of a man in Inver Grove Heights.
The south metro suburb's police department announced Tuesday that a 31-year-old Minneapolis man has been booked into the Dakota County Jail as a "person of interest in relation to the homicide of Bryant Lutgens."
Lutgens, a 39-year-old Burnsville man, was found dead in a snowbank Feb. 1 on the 1300 block of 60th Street West, which runs just east of Interstate 494. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office confirmed that Lutgens was fatally shot in the head.
Gabriel Alfonso Sanchez Cruz, 42, of Bloomington, was arrested a few days after Lutgens' death and has since been charged in Dakota County District Court with second-degree murder.
A criminal complaint says Cruz was meeting Lutgens to buy drugs, with a struggle ensuing and Cruz fatally shooting Lutgens.
Anyone with information about Lutgens' killing is asked to leave a message on the Inver Grove Heights Police Department tip line at 651-450-2530.
