A Brooklyn Park police exchanges gunfire with an armed suspect

BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. (AP) – Police in a Minneapolis suburb say an armed intruder has been arrested after exchanging gunfire with an officer.

Brooklyn Park police say they responded to a home Thursday afternoon on a report of unwanted man in a home who had a gun and was breaking windows.

Officials say the man refused to surrender, continued to cause damage and fired his gun several times.

Authorities say an officer and the suspect exchanged gunfire during the standoff, but no one was injured.

Brooklyn Park SWAT officers eventually got the man to give up.

He is currently in the Brooklyn Park Jail. The state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension has taken over the investigation.
