Police release more details on death that followed Eden Prairie home invasion

A man died shortly after two suspects fled with cash.

Police have released an update on the death that followed a home invasion in Eden Prairie on Saturday night.

A man died at the home in Jennifer Court shortly after two suspects had fled following an armed robbery at the property.

A woman, who also lives at the property, reported the robbery, but the man died at the scene despite responders performing CPR when they arrived.

Police haven't released more information about how the man died, but did reveal details of the suspects.

They say it likely started at around 9:30 p.m. when two black men, wearing black jackets, black gloves and black ski masks broke into the home.

One had a handgun that they displayed during the robbery. They then spent "a significant amount of time searching through the home before taking an undisclosed amount of cash and fleeing on foot."

Comments made during the robbery to the victims lead police to believe it was a targeted crime.

Further details about the two victims have not been released. That will come at a later stage from the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office.

Police want anyone with information to contact 952-949-6200. An undisclosed reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest.
