Arrest warrant issued in GF double homicide

An arrest warrant has been issued for the ex-boyfriend of a Granite Falls woman who was fatally shot on Labor Day along with another man.

The Minnesota Department of Public Safety said Andrew Dikken, 28, is wanted in the shooting deaths of 26-year-old Kara Monson and her 28-year-old boyfriend, Chris Panitzke, of Redwood Falls.

Authorities have been unable to locate Dikken since a search began after the shooting at Monson’s home in Granite Falls. Authorities found Dikken’s vehicle north of Belview two days after the incident.

Monson’s funeral was Tuesday at Granite Falls Lutheran Church.

Panitzke, who made the 911 call for help after the shooting, died Sunday at the Hennepin County Medical Center as a result of multiple gunshot wounds.
