Suspect In Police Standoff Charged 24 Jul 14

A Le Center man involved in an armed standoff with police Monday night has been charged with two felony counts of reckless discharge of a firearm. Authorities were called to the home of Matthew Jason Schloesser at around 4pm Monday after reports that he was making suicidal threats. He was taken into custody by the River Valley Tactical Force after a nearly five-and-a-half hour standoff in which he allegedly fired a shotgun at least once before surrendering peacefully. Schloesser is reportedly undergoing a mental health evaluation at the Mankato Mayo Hospital, and a court date has not yet been set.
