A Red Lake police officer was fatally shot Tuesday morning while responding to a call at a home on the Red Lake Indian Reservation, the FBI says.
Few details are known about what happened, but Native News Online says the officer was shot and killed while on duty east of Redby, on the Red Lake Indian Reservation.
The FBI says someone fired a weapon, killing the officer. The suspect is in custody and an investigation is underway.
Friends and family on social media have identified the officer as Ryan Bialke, who is reportedly a non-tribal member. He's listed on the Red Lake Nation website as a conservation enforcement officer, but this has not been officially confirmed by authorities.
The Red Lake Tribal Council is offering "sincere condolences" to friends and family of the officer, noting all non-essential tribal programs are closed on July 27.
There are 38 members on the Red Lake Police Department's force, according to the website. This incident is believed to be the second Red Lake officer to die in the line of duty. On July 7, 2019, conservation officer Shannon Lee "Opie" Barron died after experiencing a medical emergency during a call.
