Deputy Sheriff Allen Albee was shot and killed while trying to arrest a subject wanted for a shooting in Minnesota the previous day.

The subject's car was located near Webster Elementary School, in Burnett County. Deputy Mike Seversen, of the Polk County Sheriff's Office, responded to the scene when the Burnett County Sheriff's Office requested additional assistance.

Other deputies returned fire and killed the subject.
