Police officer fatally shot on Red Lake Indian Reservation, FBI investigating

The FBI is investigating after someone shot and killed a police officer on the Red Lake Indian Reservation Tuesday morning. 

The FBI said Red Lake Police Department officers were responding to a call about a suicidal male at a residence. The suspect opened fire, killing an officer. The person who shot the officer is in custody. 

The officer was identified as 37-year-old Ryan Bialke.

"It is with heavy hearts to announce that the Red Lake Nation lost a police officer this morning," the Red Lake Tribal Council said in a statement. 

The tribal council closed all non-essential tribal programs on Tuesday out of respect for the fallen officer and directing all tribal programs and businesses to lower flags to half-staff throughout the week.
