Update - 4:30 p.m.

A spokesperson for the Minneapolis Police Department provided additional details surrounding the high-profile police incident in Plymouth Monday afternoon. 

According to authorities, Minneapolis police tried to stop a vehicle in North Minneapolis shortly before 2 p.m. The department says an individual in the vehicle was wanted in connection with a shooting.

That vehicle fled the scene and officers pursued, going through "several cities." Police requested air support from the Minnesota State Patrol, but were unable to secure it. In an effort to end the chase, an officer with the Crystal Police Department used a PIT maneuver to stop the vehicle in question. 

Police arrested five occupants in the vehicle, adding "several" guns were found in the car.  Police also say nobody was injured during the pursuit or arrest, and that they aren't able to release additional information "due to the active nature of this case."

Original story

An incident involving multiple squad cars has blocked a busy Plymouth intersection Monday afternoon, with police diverting traffic through Hamel.

MnDOT traffic cameras show at least nine squad cars and an SUV in the intersection of Highway 55 and County Road 101/Peony Lane, blocks from Wayzata High School, at 2 p.m. 

Traffic cameras showed squad cars blocking Highway 55 at Clydesdale Trail to divert traffic off Highway 55 through downtown Hamel, with Plymouth PD confirming that the highway is closed in both directions from Peony to Vicksburg lanes.

MnDOT's website lists the incident as a crash, and shows traffic backed up in the area. 

Bring Me The News reached out to Plymouth PD, which said Minneapolis is handling the investigation. BMTN has reached out to Minneapolis PD, too. 

Images shared on Twitter by the MN Crime scanner account shows multiple armed officers arresting people at gunpoint.

The account says that five people were arrested and "multiple guns" were recovered, but this has not been officially confirmed.
