Police officer shot, killed in Minnesota



COLD SPRING, Minn. — A police officer has been shot and killed while conducting a routine check on a resident in central Minnesota.
Stearns County Chief Deputy Bruce Bechtold says the male officer was killed late Thursday behind an apartment above a bar in Cold Spring, near St. Cloud.
A suspect has been arrested.
Police have not released the names of the officer or the suspect.
Bechtold says he believes the suspect was in the house that the officer was called to check.
