According to a press release by the department, police were called to a residence on the 2400 block of Paha Circle just before 7:30 p.m. on a report of a shooting.
Arriving officers found a 65-year-old male inside the home with gunshot wounds. He was transported to Hennepin County Medical Center where he was pronounced deceased.
Brady Daniel Zipoy, 23, was taken into custody at the scene and is currently being held in Scott County Jail on probable cause second-degree murder. Police said they do not believe that Zipoy and the victim knew each other, but they do not believe there is any danger to the general public.
