NORTH MANKATO, Minn. (AP) -- One person is confirmed dead after a police standoff in North Mankato led to a shooting.
Police released few details about the shooting that came after a three-hour standoff at a home on the North Mankato hilltop Thursday.
Police began advising motorists at 11 a.m. that streets might be shut down for what was called a "welfare check." Within minutes, police from Mankato and North Mankato and a regional tactical response team had the home surrounded.
The Free Press (http://bit.ly/WLwV6m) reports assault rifles were trained on the house throughout the standoff. Just after 2 p.m., officers entered the home and multiple gunshots were heard several minutes later. An ambulance left later with a body.
North Mankato Police Chief Chris Boyer confirmed there was a death but offered little information.
