Police kill armed man

Police in Minneapolis say officers shot and killed a man who was firing a handgun as he walked down a city street.

In a statement on the department's Facebook page, police say the incident happened around 5:30 p.m. Saturday on the north side of Minneapolis.

Authorities say two calls to 911 reported that a man was firing a handgun into the air and the ground. When officers arrived, they pursued a suspect on foot and the chase "ended in shots being fired."

The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Mayor Jacob Frey said in a statement that the body cameras of the officers involved were "on and activated."

Hours after the shooting, the Star Tribune reports a loud but peaceful crowd started to gather at the scene.
