Funeral set for Minnesota courthouse shooting suspect

DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — A funeral has been scheduled for the man accused of shooting and wounding two men at the Cook County Courthouse in northeastern Minnesota earlier this month.

The Duluth News Tribune reports services for 42-year-old Daniel Schlienz will be held Jan. 7 at the Cornerstone Church in Grand Marais.

Schlienz died Tuesday at a Duluth hospital after being taken there from the St. Louis County Jail for what the sheriff’s office said was treatment for “flu-like symptoms.”

Schlienz was being held at the jail on two counts of attempted first-degree premeditated murder for the Dec. 15 shootings of Cook County Attorney Tim Scannell and 53-year-old Gregory Thompson of Grand Marais.

Both Scannell and Thompson left the hospital within a few days.
