The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, which has taken over the investigation, named him Friday as 28-year-old Phume Lee, of St. Paul. He died of multiple gunshot wounds.

The police department said earlier that the shooting took place about 6 p.m. Thursday in the Dayton's Bluff neighborhood after a woman fled from a house, called 911 and told dispatchers the man had shot at her with five young children nearby.

Sgt. Mike Ernster says that as the suspect fled the house, police pursued him and shots were fired during a confrontation. He says a gun was recovered at the scene. No officers were hurt.

Ernester says the officers involved were wearing body cameras that investigators will examine.
