The U.S. Marshals Service says that a man was fatally shot by law enforcement in Uptown, Minneapolis Thursday afternoon.

In a statement, the service claims that members of a "task force" were trying to arrest a man wanted on a warrant for being "a felon in possession of a gun" at the parking ramp at West Lake Street and Girard Avenue, adjacent to what was formerly known as Calhoun Square.

This man, it says, was in a parked car and allegedly "failed to comply" before showing a handgun.

Law enforcement then opened fire, who died despite life-saving efforts. A woman who was in the car at the time was injured by glass debris, and taken to a hospital.

A spokesperson for the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office had earlier confirmed to Bring Me The News shortly after 4:30 p.m. that an individual was shot and killed, but could not release any further details.

ATF St. Paul also said it responded to a police shooting, though a spokesperson told Bring Me The News its agents weren't involved in the incident, and was instead "providing investigative assistance" at the scene.

Hennepin County Commissioner Marion Greene tweeted:

Both MPR News and the Star Tribune are reporting that Hennepin County Sheriff's deputies were involved in the shooting and that the victim has died. 

Bring Me The News has reached out to local authorities for more information.
