|Incident at a Glance|
|# of Suspects:||1||Shots Fired:||Multiple|
If you want to run from an area and hide, you’re probably SOL if there is snow on the ground, but I guess if you’re facing prison you don’t really think logically about things like that.
According to local media reports, a MN resident awoke to the sounds of someone breaking into his home. The homeowner armed himself and went to investigate.
The homeowner found an intruder in his living room and attempted to hold the man at gunpoint.
However, while the homeowner was on the phone with authorities, according to the homeowner, the suspect made a move to reach for his waistband and then attempted to flee the home.
The homeowner fired several shots at the suspect during this time period, but the suspect did manage to escape.
However, the suspect didn’t think about the fact that this was Minnesota in the winter, which likely means snow on the ground.
According to Northland News Center,
Deputies followed tracks along Alma Razor Road which led them into the woods where they located a man hiding in a snow bank behind a tree.
Authorities say the suspect matched the description of the intruder and his footprints led from the residence.
The suspect was suffering from hypothermia when he was found by police and was treated at a local hospital before being booked into jail.
