Details await in Burnsville shooting death
Burnsville police and the Dakota County coroner are investigating an early-morning shooting death on Dec. 31.
Police responded at 2:44 a.m. to an address on the 12700 block of Nicollet Avenue South, where they found a male dead from a gunshot wound, Sgt. Rory Bochniak said.
Another male inside was taken into custody and is being held at the Dakota County Jail. That person reported the shooting as self-inflicted, Bochniak said.
The coroner’s report will determine “whether we have a crime or not,” he said.
Police didn’t release the names or ages of either party.
