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.
