The Hennepin County Medical Examiner has identified a Brooklyn Park man who drowned in a Maple Grove pond on Friday night.
Andrew Pitts, 20, walked on the frozen pond behind 12300 Elm Creek Blvd. after 8:00 p.m. The Hennepin County Sheriff's Office said someone called 911 after a witness saw Pitts fall into the pond. Pitts was pulled out about an hour later, unconscious. He died after being rushed to Maple Grove Hospital.
Sheriff's spokeswoman Lisa Kiava says investigators are looking into why Pitts went on the pond.
