A suspect is dead after an alleged home invasion in Pine County early Thursday morning.
Deputies say they were called to a home on Fox Road near Sandstone, Minn., at 2:38 a.m. on a report of a shooting. According to the initial report, two men entered the home and confronted the elderly homeowner; at least one suspect reportedly had a gun.
The homeowner also had a handgun and shot the armed suspect, who died at the scene.
Deputies and investigators searched the area for the second suspect with the help from a Minnesota State Patrol helicopter and infrared equipment. The suspect is still at large.
