4 Arrested For Brooklyn Center Home Invasion

BROOKLYN CENTER, Minn. (WCCO) — A family of five is safe Tuesday morning after a break-in that led to a 4-hour standoff Monday night.

Police said four masked gunmen broke into a family’s home along Halifax Avenue in Brooklyn Center, Minn. after 5 p.m.

One of the family members was able to escape and call 911.

When police arrived, two of the suspects surrendered right away. A third suspect was arrested as he was trying to leave the home about two hours into the standoff.

Officers arrested the fourth suspect when they entered the home around 9:15 p.m. He was found hiding in the attic above the garage.

Three adults and two children were in the home at the time and were able to get out safely. No one was hurt during the standoff.

Police believe the motive was robbery, but they are still looking into why the home was targeted. They said they don’t think it was a random act, but wouldn’t elaborate.

Officers haven’t released much information about the four suspects who were arrested, but have said they range from ages 30-31. Police also said that they are familiar with the suspects.

    Brooklyn Park and Brooklyn Center are sadly overrun with people of a certain origin. I won’t even get off of 694 to patronize any business in either city.

    Shouldn’t they be protesting outside the Government Center asking congress for more handouts?!?!?!?

    • jackactionhero

      Number 1, nobody is protesting anybody for the purpose of gaining any handouts. Number 2, the kind of people involved in a home invasion are not the kind of people to be civically involved.

      Basically your comment was akin to peeing in a public pool.
