ROCHESTER, Minn. - Police said Wednesday that evidence indicates 18-year-old Maxwell Pearson killed his father, 61-year-old Gary Pearson, in a murder-suicide earlier this week.
At a morning press briefing, police said both bodies were found outside the home in the 1500 block of 8th Ave. NW.
Police said the mother of the 18-year-old found the bodies Monday and called 911.
Both individuals died from gunshot wounds and at least one gun was recovered at the scene, authorities said.
