A man is dead following an officer-involved shooting in Crystal.

The Hennepin County Sheriff's Office says a call came in around 5 p.m. Friday regarding a person wanting to kill themselves on the 5100 block of Angeline Avenue North. 

When officers arrived, they say they found a man with a gun. So officials evacuated neighbors in nearby houses and tried to make contact with the armed man.
