Police used an armored vehicle to tear a hole in the wall of a house where the suspect in a 9-hour standoff was hiding Friday, according to the Pioneer Press.

Officers responded to the house in the 3800 block of Aldrich Avenue North around 11:30 a.m. after a man walked into the front yard and began firing a gun at neighbors.

As police approached the house, the suspect also shot at the officers.

WCCO reports police negotiated with the man for several hours and multiple rounds of tear gas were fired inside the residence to force the man out. Eventually, a remote-controlled Bobcat loader was used to open a wall of the house.

The man attempted to flee, but officers eventually caught up with him and he was placed under arrest shortly after 9 p.m. KSTP says he suffered minor injuries, but no one else was injured.

His identity has not been released, but KARE 11 reports the man is in his twenties.

He could face attempted murder and aggravated assault charges.
