More details emerge in Hubbard Co. shooting that left 3 dead

A friend has identified the suspected gunman to local media.

We're learning more about the shooting that left three people dead in small-town Nevis, Minnesota, this week.

The Hubbard County Sheriff's Office said the incident began Thursday evening at an in-home daycare, where one woman was shot dead by a suspect who then fled the scene in a car with a second woman, who was also subsequently shot and killed.

A 20-minute chase with Hubbard County sheriff's deputies ensued, leading to a brief shootout that left one deputy injured and the suspect himself dead.

Details regarding the circumstances and the motive have been scarce, but a friend of the three people involved tells WCCO the incident was related to a divorce.

The friend, Eddie Neidviecky, told the station the two women involved had arrived at the daycare to pick up their sister's children, at which point an altercation occurred.

Meanwhile, Forum News Service has identified the suspect as 34-year-old Bryce Bellomo, who was charged with "domestic assault for an incident involving his wife" last year, and served divorce papers earlier this month.

The Forum says the daycare where the incident started is owned by Bellomo's mother.

Comments on his Facebook page indicate he had worked as a firefighter and first responder.

As the Pioneer Press points out, it's not clear whether the suspect shot himself or was shot to death by sheriff's deputies.

The deputy who was shot was hospitalized with non life-threatening injuries. 

The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is now investigating the case.
