ALBERTVILLE, Minn. (KNSI) Another bear sighting in the Twin Cities area--this time Albertville on Tuesday night. 

Wright County Sheriff Joe Hagerty says the bear was shot and killed by a homeowner whose daughter was playing in their backyard on Karston Avenue Northeast.

He saw the bear walk out of the woods toward his home, and fearing for his daughter's safety, grabbed a rifle and shot it. The sheriff's office and the DNR investigated. Hagerty says the case is closed and no action will be taken against the homeowner.
