The father of the 19-year-old man who was killed while trespassing outside a rural Madelia home is suing the homeowner who shot him. Nicolas Embertson was fatally shot by David Allen Petersen in January 2016. Petersen told authorities he felt threatened after Embertson and two friends tried to break into his home. The lawsuit filed by Erik Embertson in Watonwan County District Court claims Petersen acted negligently and recklessly and seeks financial damages.
