MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minneapolis Police say a 7-hour standoff involving an armed man who barricaded himself inside a home has ended peacefully.
Inspector Mike Kjos, of the Minneapolis Police Department, said they were able to pinpoint the location of the man inside the home, located off the 3500 block of Newton Avenue North, and send in a robot unit.
Kjos said police were in the area of the north Minneapolis home early Sunday morning, when a woman ran out of the home to ask for help. She said she was just involved in a domestic incident. The officers followed her back to the residence and learned that another man, woman and child were still inside the residence.
