PRIOR LAKE, Minn. (AP) – A Minneapolis man accused of fatally shooting his former boyfriend at a gas station last month remains at large after the third day of an intensive manhunt.
The search for 44-year-old Lyle Hoffman shifted from the Anoka County airport in Blaine to Prior Lake Wednesday after a man resembling Hoffman was spotted in and around Mystic Lake Casino.
But the Star Tribune reports authorities say a Chevy TrailBlazer is no longer believed to be connected to Hoffman. Earlier, authorities had said someone in the SUV might have picked Hoffman up.
Hoffman is accused of fatally shooting a business and romantic partner, Kelly Phillips, on August 11th at an Arden Hills gas station. Police say a suspect who held up the TCF Bank in Blaine Sunday closely resembles Hoffman.
