BACKUS, Minn. (AP) - Authorities have identified the man who was fatally shot in a Cass County home and the neighbor who apparently killed him before he was fatally shot by a sheriff’s deputy.

The Ramsey County medical examiner says 72-year-old Maynard Anderson was killed at a Backus home Sunday afternoon.

A 911 caller told dispatchers a neighbor had entered their house armed with a gun, according to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. The caller fled to a safe location and reported hearing gunshots while hiding.

First responders found 57-year-old Keith Haux walking down a road in the area armed with gun. Authorities say he was shot after he was given multiple commands. A weapon was recovered at the scene.

Both Anderson and Haux died of multiple gunshot wounds, according to the medical examiner.

The BCA collected body camera and squad video which captured the incident, which remains under investigation.
