Police received multiple reports of "a threat of violence" on social media Monday evening. According to a press release issued at 10:38 a.m. Tuesday, officers immediately began an investigation and search for the suspect. Early Tuesday morning, officers from the Fond du Lac and Cloquet police departments and the Carlton County Sheriff's Office located the suspect in a home on the Fond du Lac Reservation, just outside the city of Cloquet. After a brief confrontation with the residents in the house, he was taken into custody. Officers did not locate any weapons with the suspect when he was arrested.

The reaction from councilors and Mayor Dave Hallback was mixed. "This is a big change," Ward 2 Councilor David Bjerkness said. "When we make quick decisions, they're usually not very good."

If Gov. Mark Dayton gets his wish, the "Land of 10,000 Lakes" could someday claim to be the "Land of 10,000 Clean Lakes and great drinking water." But not now. That's because more than 40 percent of Minnesota's waters are currently listed as impaired or polluted, and more and more rural drinking water systems are having to deal with nitrate contamination and other issues.
