Police chase suspect down I-94 in murder-suicide
A Big Lake man, who police say killed his girlfriend’s 27-year-old son, killed himself after leading police on a car chase down Interstate 94 on Saturday morning.
According to the Star Tribune, Peter Tek, 42, and his girlfriend, who was unnamed in both the Tribune’s story and the Pioneer Press, returned to their home 2 a.m. when Tek and his girlfriend’s son, Savang Sath, began to argue. In the end, Sath was shot in the head while Tek forced his girlfriend into his Lincoln Navigator and fled.
The Star Tribune also reported that two females were held at the residence by Tek before he fled.
Meanwhile the Star Tribune uncovered that Tek called his son and ex-wife during the car chase, while the Pioneer Press reported that authorities negotiated with Tek for an hour before he released his girlfriend and turned his gun on himself.
The Star Tribune also reported on Tek’s past. His family fled Cambodia in the 1980s after Tek had fought in the wars of the 1960s 70s. He worked at a Shakopee printing press for 20 years up until the time of his death and had returned to Cambodia last month on a mission trip.
