Traffic was slowed on County Rd. F south of Hudson for about two hours Thursday while St. Croix County sheriff's deputies searched for a homicide suspect from Minnesota.

"There was an attempted homicide in Carver County, Minn., and the suspect was known to frequent a residence on County Rd. F," said Sheriff Dennis Hillsetad. "A neighbor reported seeing the suspect's vehicle at the residence so we responded, but neither the suspect nor the vehicle was there."
