The property has since been left riddled with bullet holes after police opened fire, with Vue having allegedly emerged from the house with a gun which he pointed and fired at police.

FOX 9 reports that a property across the street was also struck by bullets, supposedly from Vue's gun.

Citing a source, the Star Tribune reports that as many as 9 officers may have been placed on administrative leave in relation to the shooting, which is standard procedure after officer-involved shootings.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is carrying out the investigation.
