Roseville police confirm both men who were shot behind the REI store in a strip mall were killed in a murder-suicide on Thursday afternoon.
Responding officers were directed to the warehouse and truck entrance of a multi-tenant building near County Road B2 and Prior Avenue at 4:15 p.m. by roofers who were working in the area at the time of the shooting.
Upon arrival, a 33-year-old man was found dead and a 44-year-old man was found with a life-threatening head injury in the parking lot near CPI Card Group, a business that specializes in making gift cards.
The 44-year-old man was taken to HCMC, but he died of his injuries at about 6 p.m.
According to police, the pistol used in the shooting was recovered near the 44-year-old with the head injury.
Investigators took a 35-year-old woman who was on the scene and may have witnessed the shooting into custody for questioning. She was not injured and is cooperating with police.
According to police, the woman and the 33-year-old victim are CPI employees. The 44-year-old man is believed to be the woman's husband.
Neither man's identity will be released until family members are notified.
No suspects are being sought, but Roseville police and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension continue to investigate and are currently holding a Toyota Land Cruiser and an older-model Audi in connection with the shooting investigation.
Police hope to learn more after reviewing the surveillance video from cameras at the business. Additional details could be released as soon as Friday.
