Man Who Refused to Surrender to Duluth Police During Standoff Dead After Shots Fired
A man who refused to surrender to Duluth police during a roughly 20-hour standoff is dead after shots were fired.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension called the incident an officer-involved shooting, but did not specify whether the man was killed by police fire. The standoff began at about 8:30 PM Thursday after police responded to a report of an assault and a man inside refused to surrender. Gunshots were heard before 5 PM Friday, and the BCA tweeted shortly before 6 PM that the man was deceased.
Earlier, the police K9 Luna was sent in to help apprehend the suspect who began shooting. Luna was hit by gunfire and later died at a veterinary clinic.
