BACKUS, Minn. (AP) — Authorities have identified the man who was fatally shot in a Cass County home and the neighbor who apparently killed him before he was fatally shot by a sheriff’s deputy.
The Ramsey County medical examiner says 72-year-old Maynard Anderson was killed at a Backus home Sunday afternoon. The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension says a 911 caller told dispatchers a neighbor had entered their house armed with a gun.
The caller fled to a safe location and reported hearing gunshots while hiding. First responders found 57-year-old Keith Haux walking down a road in the area armed with gun. Authorities say he was shot after he was given multiple commands.
