Correction: An earlier version of this story stated that the SUV caught on surveillance camera after the alleged murder belonged to the woman who was with Zielinski at the time of the killing. It is actually owned by a woman who lives at the same address as Zielinski, who was not at the scene of the crime. We apologize for this error.
A man from Hermantown in northern Minnesota has been charged with the murder of a 22-year-old man in Lino Lakes last week.
Nicholas Walter Zielinski, 43, was charged with the 2nd-degree murder of Karl Henderson, who died after being shot in the abdomen at the home on the 6900 block of West Shadow Lake Drive on the afternoon of Thursday, Aug. 27.
Henderson's father returned to his home, which is located around the corner from Chamonix Golf Course, to find an unfamiliar. black SUV in his driveway and, once inside, a man and a woman in his kitchen.
He followed the pair outside, asking what they were doing in his home, with the man telling him: "Your son stole on me," adding: "I'll take you out too."
The pair then drove away, but the make of the SUV was captured on a number of doorbell cameras in the local area, and swabs taken from a gun found in the home matched the DNR of Zielinski.
Henderson's father than identified him in a lineup, with the SUV owned by a woman who lives at the same address as Zielinski.
A GoFundMe for Henderson's family has so far raised in excess of $11,000.
