1 man dies in officer-involved shooting in Minnetonka


The Hennepin County Sheriff's Office is investigating an officer-involved shooting incident in Minnetonka Wednesday night that left one man dead, WCCO-TV reports.

Officers responded to a call about a person with a gun at the Claremont Apartments about 8:24 p.m. and encountered a man with a weapon in an underground parking garage, authorities say.

According to officials, police exchanged gunfire with the man, who was found dead at the scene.

A resident of the apartment complex tells the Minnetonka Patch that she first heard one shot -- followed by three successive shots -- come from the underground garage, which was cordoned off by police.

No other details surrounding the incident have been released by authorities.

Sheriff's officials called the event an isolated incident and said the public was not in any danger.
