ROCHESTER, Minn. — An apparent homicide-suicide has claimed the lives of a father and son at their home in northwest Rochester.

Rochester police identified the two as Maxwell Artem Pearson, 18, and Gary Raymond Pearson, 61.

Police were called to the scene, a home in the 1500 block of Eighth Avenue Northwest, shortly before 4 p.m. Monday, July 15. A woman returned home to the residence and found her son had been shot, Capt. Casey Moilanen said Tuesday morning.

When officers arrived, they found a 61-year-old male in another area of the property. He had also been shot, Moilanen said. Neither man could be revived and both lived at the address. Police said it appears the incident was a homicide-suicide but are still waiting for autopsy results and further investigation before making a determination.

Police recovered a gun from the scene.
