A Blaine man was one of two people dead after being found unresponsive in Mahtomedi early Monday, Feb. 1.

The Blaine man has been identified as David Peterson, 49, and the other man was Jimmy Wilemon, 58, of Fulton, Mississippi, according to the Washington County Sheriff's Office.

Just before 2:30 a.m., the Sheriff's Office received a call for service for two unresponsive people outside of 7 Long Lake Road in Mahtomedi. The address is listed as a FedEx Ground facility with a drop box. Responding deputies found two adult males, identified as Peterson and Wilemon. One was dead, and life-saving measures were performed on the other. He was transported to the hospital, where he later died, according to the Sheriff's Office.

A firearm was located on scene, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Authorities are not seeking any suspects and say there is no current threat to public safety.

A preliminary cause of death won't be available until autopsies are complete, according to Commander Sara Halverson, of the Washington County Sheriff's Office.

This story has been corrected to say two men are dead after being found unresponsive. One had not yet died when first responders arrived.
