Law enforcement kills man with gun in Little Falls

LITTLE FALLS, Minn. (AP) — A 37-year-old man is dead after being shot by law enforcement.

County Sheriff Michel Wetzel says deputies were called at 12:22 a.m. Thursday about a man with a gun who was suicidal.

Deputies and Little Falls police found the man as he was leaving the home of an acquaintance in Little Falls. Wetzel says when officers tried to stop the vehicle, the driver pulled into a nearby driveway.

Wetzel says the man got out with a shotgun and wouldn't put it down. Two Little Falls officers and two Morrison County deputies fired and the man died at the scene. His name has not been released.

The St. Cloud Times reports that the investigation has been turned over to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.
