FBI shoots and kills man during standoff in Minneapolis

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The FBI says a man was shot and killed after a lengthy standoff Thursday at a north Minneapolis home.

Agents were trying to execute a search warrant at the home when the man barricaded himself inside, the FBI said in a statement.

After hours of negotiations, the man came out of the house with a gun and was shot. It was not immediately clear how many FBI agents fired their weapons.

An unarmed woman inside the home was injured and taken to the hospital, but the extent of her injuries are unknown, officials said.

No other details were immediately released.

Minneapolis Police Chief Brian O’Hara said the man live-streamed the match from inside the home.

Minneapolis police and Hennepin County sheriff’s deputies were on the scene to assist, but neither of those officers fired their weapons, KSTP-TV reported.
