Posted:

HUDSON TOWNSHIP, Minn. (AP) -- Two people are dead and a deputy is shot and wounded in west central Minnesota.

Douglas County sheriff's officials say a deputy was dispatched about 9:20 p.m. Monday on a report of a suspicious vehicle in the driveway of a residence in Hudson Township. Authorities say one of two people in the vehicle shot the responding deputy in the chest. The deputy was wearing a bullet resistant vest and was injured. The deputy returned fire and the suspects fled.

KBRF (http://bit.ly/1ffR6Es ) reports that after their vehicle got stuck in the snow, the suspects fled on foot. Sheriff's deputies searched the area and found both suspects dead in the snow with a firearm nearby.

Both bodies have been sent to the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office for autopsies. The deputy was treated at a hospital and released.
