The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) and Granite Falls Police are looking for a person of interest in an apparent homicide that occurred early this morning in Granite Falls, said the Minnesota Department of Public Safety

Granite Falls police responded to a 911 call in the 1100 block of Prentice Street at approximately 3:30 a.m. today, the DPS said.
