Both men involved in a fatal shooting last Wednesday night at a New York Mills residence died due to gunshot wounds and have been identified, according to a news release Monday from the Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office.
Ethan Honer, 20, of Dent, was identified as the man who was shot and found dead at the scene. Jacob Geiser, 23, of New York Mills, also died. Witnesses at the scene reportedly indicated that Geiser shot Honer, then shot himself.
Geiser was unconscious, taken by ambulance to Wadena Tri-County Hospital and was airlifted to a hospital in St. Cloud. He died Aug. 1.
Deputies received a 911 call just after 9 p.m. Wednesday from a woman who reported gunshots fired in the 57000 block of County Hwy. 56 in New York Mills.
An ex-girlfriend of Geiser, along with her present boyfriend, Honer, went to Geiser’s residence to pick up a couple of dogs that belonged to the woman, according to Otter Tail County Chief Deputy Stacy Paulseth.
