Austin, MN (KROC-AM News) – One of the victims of a “serious assault” in Austin has died.

Austin Police Chief David McKichan says the individual who died was one of two people who were transported to the Mayo Clinic Health System Hospital in Austin after officers responded to a home at 808 3rd Avenue Northwest shortly before 9 AM. Initial reports indicated the victims had been stabbed, but that has yet to be confirmed by Austin Police.

A suspect, identified as 27-year-old Jaime Vaca of Austin, was arrested and is currently being held at the Mower County Jail. Chief McKichan says there is no threat to the general public.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is assisting with the investigation.
