    BUFFALO, Minn. (AP) — The son of an Elk River police officer who is charged with fatally shooting his father and brother told a dispatcher he "just lost it" and killed the two, according to a criminal complaint filed in Wright County.

    Christopher T. Besser, 21, of St. Michael, told authorities he was fed up with his father's expectations of him, the complaint said, without being specific.

    Besser called 911 Saturday from a Kwik Trip in Monticello and told the dispatcher about the shooting, prosecutors said. Besser was arrested at the Kwik Trip less than an hour after Todd Besser, 49, and Blake Besser, 27, were killed at the St. Michael home.

    Gwen Besser, wife of slain police officer Todd Besser, asks for prayer, healing and forgiveness after leaving the Wright County Government Center, Tuesday, May 12, 2015 in Buffalo, Minn.

    omg how horrendous! what a nightmare for this mother!! not only has she lost a husband and son, but at the hands of her child ........i cannot imagine her grief and shock.......

    i must admit being confused at one thing........he states that he shot his older brother to not leave behind a witness to the killing of his father.....however he then calls and confesses to the killing and apparently turns himself in.........what? i'll be interested to hear more details as they are revealed...........what a tragedy......

    February 2016:

    Besser gets 61 years in murders of dad, brother

    http://www.kare11.com/news/crime/bes...other/33243690

    A Wright County man was sentenced to 61 years in prison Friday for the cold-blooded murders of his father and brother.

    Christopher Besser issued an emotional apology to a packed Wright County courtroom and asked for forgiveness after the sentence was announced as part of a plea agreement. He agreed to a plea of two counts of second degree murder that were intentional but not premeditated. He will be eligible for parole after 40 years, something family members agreed to.
