MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A man suspected of murdering two other men shot himself to death off a rural road west of Cloquet, after a state trooper stopped him for questioning.
Authorities said the man confessed to the murders to a dispatcher while he was being pursued by the trooper early Saturday. A state trooper spotted a vehicle driving away from the scene where two men were found dead.
The driver refused to stop for the trooper, leading to a chase that ended when his vehicle skidded into a ditch just west of Cloquet. It was then that the suspect shot himself.
