DETROIT LAKES -- Ronald Matthew Quiceno, 38, was arrested without incident on Saturday afternoon at his Detroit Lakes residence and booked on probable cause of second-degree murder and other related charges.

When asked to leave, Quiceno retrieved a .22 revolver from his vehicle then came back into the home and shot the two victims.

The first victim, identified by the Midwest Medical Examiner's Office as Travis Dwayne Buckanaga, 23, of Detroit Lakes, died at Essentia Health St. Mary's in Detroit Lakes.

The second victim was taken to Sanford Hospital in Fargo with non-life threatening injuries. The injured victim has been identified as Barris Duane Guy, 26, of Detroit Lakes.
