The man rang the doorbell saying he was being chased by attackers. The homeowner let him in and called 911 to help him, but was then shot and killed.

The story that the man was being pursued by people with baseball bats apparently was bogus, said police, who have jailed a 20-year-old felon on suspicion of the slaying.

The victim has been identified by relatives as Thomas Sonnenberg, a 69-year-old retired grandfather.

“He was shot in the head,” said the victim’s brother, Darrell Sonnenberg of Minneapolis.

The suspect (pictured) is Devin Derrick Parker.
