Big Trouble In Big Lake

"Big Lake, MN - Sherburne County authorities say a Big Lake man shot and killed his girlfriend's son, then abducted her, before eventually turning the gun on himself.

"Authorities say 42-year-old Peter Tek shot and killed 27-year-old Savang Sath in a house on the 1000-block of Eagle Lake Road N. around 3 a.m. Saturday.

"Investigators say Tek then abducted Sath's mother and fled in a Lincoln Navigator. Wright County deputies spotted the SUV in Monticello and gave chase. Tek eventually pulled over on Interstate 94 near County Road 6.

"Officials negotiated with Tek for about an hour before he finally let the woman go. Once the female was in police custody, officers say Tek turned the gun on himself. They recovered a .45-caliber Taurus semiautomatic handgun in his SUV. Investigators said it matched shell casings found where Sath was killed.

"Autopsies will be conducted on both men. The woman was taken to the hospital, where she was listed in fair condition Saturday afternoon."
