Star Tribune

HAM LAKE, Minn. — A Ham Lake man was found shot to death in his house Thursday after a 16-hour standoff that culminated with a SWAT team storming the residence behind a patrol dog, which was killed during an ensuing exchange of gunfire.

Authorities say an autopsy will reveal whether the man, identified by friends and neighbors as 70-year-old Theodore Kowalzek, shot himself or was killed by a SWAT team officer who returned the gunfire that authorities say killed Rocky, a 7-year-old Belgian Malinois that served as a patrol dog for five years.
