St. Peter, MN (NNCNOW.com/KARE) - Investigators are looking into the murder of a patient at the MN State Hospital in St. Peter.

St. Peter Police Chief Matthew Peters says officers and medical personnel were called to the facility just before 8 p.m. Wednesday night after hospital security staff found an unresponsive adult male patient.

When squads arrived at the high security facility they found 41-year-old Michael Francis Douglas suffering from what are being called violent traumatic injuries.

Peters says paramedics attempted to revive Douglas but efforts were unsuccessful.
