Moorhead police are investigating an apparent homicide that left one man dead Wednesday night. Police responded to the home of Henry Volchenko around 9:30, where they found him dead.

Volchenko was a war-veteran in his 80's or 90's who would open his home to people who needed help. Friends of the victim say the murder happened from "a burglary gone bad" and say they helped the man install new locks on his doors after people tried to break in. But Moorhead police are not releasing anything about potential suspects. Police say they don't believe the public is in danger, and ask anyone with more information to contact them.
