Minneapolis police shoot man dead after domestic assault call

The man allegedly opened fire on officers.

A man has died in North Minneapolis after being shot by police responding to a domestic assault call.

The incident happened around 3 a.m. in the 3100 block of Thomas Avenue, with police receiving a call about a domestic incident with weapons involved.

Officers were then informed that a shot or shots had been fired inside the property, with people fleeing from the home when they arrived at the scene.

Contact was made with the man inside the residence and progress was made to the point he agreed to come out of the house, according to MPD spokesman John Elder.

But as he came out, he allegedly fired upon officers, who returned fire, striking him.

He was taken to North Memorial hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension has launched an investigation into the shooting, as is procedure in officer-involved shootings.

None of the officers involved in the incident were injured.
