The FBI is reporting that a suspect in the murder of a northern Minnesota law officer is in custody.

The deadly shooting occurred early this morning on the Red Lake Indian Reservation. A preliminary report from the FBI indicates Red Lake Police Department officers were responding to a call at a residence when one of the officers was fatally shot.

An earlier report indicated the deadly incident occurred near Redby, which is about 25 miles north of Bemidji.

The first news of the officer's death surfaced late this morning when the Red Lake Tribal Council made the announcement and directed all Tribal Programs and businesses to lower flags to half staff.

It is expected the FBI will release additional information concerning the investigation later today.
