A man was arrested Thursday night after a two-hour standoff with law enforcement following a report of gunshots in Crow Wing County.
The Crow Wing County Sheriff's Office says deputies responded to a report of several gunshots near 23684 County Road 4 in Lake Edward Township at about 11:04 p.m. on Oct. 7.
When they arrived, they "encountered" a man armed with a rifle and a handgun.
"Deputies negotiated for nearly two hours and eventually convinced the suspect to put his weapons down in a safe location," the sheriff's office said.
The man, who wasn't identified, was taken into custody.
Law enforcement searched the property where the initial shooting complaint was reported and found a woman in a cabin. She was dead from an apparent gunshot wound.
The incident is under investigation, with the sheriff's office noting the names of those involved won't be released until further investigation is complete and the woman's next of kin has been notified.
