Arrest made in fatal shooting on Fond du Lac reservation
Sheriff’s officials say they’ve made an arrest in the fatal shooting of a boy on the Fond du Lac reservation in St. Louis County.
Sixteen-year-old Joseph Peterson was found dead in a pickup truck outside a residence on Dec. 28.
The teen lived on the reservation near Cloquet. Authorities say an 18-year-old man was arrested Wednesday on the White Earth reservation on a tentative charge of second-degree manslaughter.
The suspect’s mother and a 25-year-old man were also questioned about the death. Investigators have not said what might have motivated the crime.
