ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) — A Rochester family got the worst kind of news this morning — their son has been killed fighting in Afghanistan.

Jacqueline Carson said Monday morning that her son, Nicholas Dickhut, was killed Sunday in action in Afghanistan.

Nicholas had just been featured Friday by Reuters News Service, and was pictured in a battle with Taliban fighters.

When Jacqueline called to tell us what had happened this morning, she was still waiting for a visit from an officer with the official word of what had happened.

Nicholas was with the 520th Infantry Regiment, attached to the 82nd Airborne
