MINNEAPOLS (WCCO) — The suspect who fired at St. Paul police Monday night after a carjacking was shot dead Tuesday night in St. Cloud, according to police.

The man was tracked down just before 6 p.m. in a car in the parking lot of the Speedway gas station on the 2200 block of Division Street West. An armored vehicle was used to block the man in, but he got out of his vehicle with a gun.
