Suspect dead, hostage free in Riverside neighborhood standoff

Posted: Updated:

A standoff in a Riverside neighborhood in Minneapolis left the suspect dead and hostage freed on Friday night.

Police say a man shot another man then took a woman hostage at an apartment complex at 1515 South Court St. Police found the male victim with a gunshot wound. He was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center with non-threatening injuries.

Officers learned the suspect fled to the apartment after the shooting where he took the woman hostage. The SWAT Team responded and successfully negotiated her release.

The suspect refused to come out, and upon sending in a robot Saturday morning, police found he had apparently taken his own life.

Police have not disclosed the relationship between the suspect and his victims.
