A standoff in Duluth that has last almost 24 hours has ended with the suspect being fatally shot by police.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension has confirmed that the "subject of the standoff ... is deceased," and that it has launched an investigation of an "officer involved shooting."
It's not clear yet what the circumstances are that led to the police shooting the suspect, who has been barricaded inside a house on the 2300 block of West Fourth Street since 8:30 p.m. Thursday.
Police has been called to a report of a "physical domestic" incident," with the suspect – who police say is also the subject of felony warrants – allegedly refusing to surrender.
Police sent in a K9 named Luna to apprehend him, but the suspect shot her, causing injuries that later claimed her life.
It was reported earlier on Friday that a woman who was inside the home was safely removed from the property.
No human police officers have been injured in the incident, the BCA said.
