The Sherburne County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after a husband and wife were found dead in a home near Becker.

According to Sheriff Joel Brott, just before 1:30 p.m. Friday a call came into dispatchers from a woman claiming her friend was suicidal and had shot his wife.

Officers responded to the home in the 12300 block of 77th St. in Clear Lake Township and made contact with the suspect, 47-year old Christopher Norrbom, of Clear Lake, by telephone.

Law enforcement then started negotiations with Christopher Norrbom.

Swat officers were able to gain entry into an attached garage, where they discovered the body of 46-year old Janell Norrbom, also of Clear Lake.

Authorities were able to enter the home around 6:45 p.m., and discovered the body of Christopher Norrbom.

Brott says they are not seeking any suspects and the community is safe.

The couple had been married since 1999, according to online records.
