The Renville County Sheriff's Office says one person is dead and another is in custody after a shooting Thursday night. 

According to police, at about 10:14 p.m. Thursday, the sheriff's office received a 911 call reporting that a person had been shot with a firearm along North Main Street near Park Avenue East in Renville. 

Officers found a male victim who had suffered an apparent gunshot wound at the scene. He was transported by ambulance to meet North Air Care. Lifesaving measures were attempted, but the victim was pronounced dead. His name is being withheld at this time, pending notification of family. 

Authorities arrested a 26-year-old man in connection with the incident. He is currently being held at the Renville County Jail in Olivia. Formal charges by the Renville County Attorney's Office are expected to be announced in the coming days.

It is believed that the victim and the suspect knew each other and that this was an isolated incident.
