The Mahnomen County Sheriff’s Office has apprehended a suspect in a Minneapolis shooting incident… and a suspect in a Naytahwaush (MN) stabbing incident.

On Saturday afternoon, the Sheriff’s Office got word that the shooting suspect, 30-year-old Charles Ortley of Minneapolis, was at a Mahnomen apartment. Ortley was later taken into custody without incident after being pulled over on Highway 59.

Authorities say shortly after Ortley’s arrest, investigators surveilling the apartment saw the stabbing suspect, 18-year-old Ryan Pacheco of Pine River, and two other males enter a vehicle.

A pursuit on Highway 59 followed. A tire deflation device flattened one tire…then the pursuit entered Waubun, where the vehicle crashed. Pacheco, who was driving, and one passenger fled on foot but were taken into custody.

The Sheriff’s office says Pacheco is a suspect in a June 20th stabbing.

The S-O gave no further details.
