On Thursday afternoon, “task force members were attempting to apprehend an individual wanted on a state arrest warrant for possession of a firearm by a felon,” a USMS statement said.
“During the incident, the subject, who was in a parked car, failed to comply with officers’ commands and produced a handgun resulting in task force members firing upon the subject.”
The individual was pronounced dead by Hennepin County EMS at the scene, the statement said.
A woman who was also in the vehicle during the incident sustained minor injuries from glass debris, USMS said.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) is leading the investigation into the shooting.
