A man killed Friday during a shootout with police and the woman he's suspected of shooting dead at a busy intersection just before the exchange with police have been identified as 28-year-olds Corey Perry and Trisha Nelson, according to the Star Tribune and KSTP.

Their identities have not been released by the Hennepin County medical examiner's office.

Authorities said at a news conference Saturday they believe the woman was a victim of domestic violence. It appears she and the suspect had been living together, according to officials.

Law enforcement officials told KSTP that Perry – the suspected shooter – and Nelson were "cohabitants," while a local attorney described them as a couple who were engaged, the Star Tribune reports.

The incident started around 9:14 p.m. Friday near the intersection of County Road 9 and Northwest Boulevard in Plymouth, where police found a woman with a gunshot wound dead, Plymouth Police Chief Mike Goldstein said on Saturday, according to KARE 11.

About four minutes later, Perry was reported at an apartment complex about 2 miles away where the shootout took place.

It’s not clear if the man, who was described as having a violent past, died due to officers’ gunshots, Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek said at a news conference Saturday.

According to Stanek, the suspect had a long gun and a hand gun and had been wearing a “tactical” vest, loaded with magazines.

The suspect was a prohibited person who should not have had access to firearms, the sheriff noted. Officials will investigate how the man got the weapons.
