MN Man’s Shootout Death Much Like His Brother’s

HandgunSUPERIOR, Wis. (AP) – A Duluth, Minnesota man who died after a shooting with police in Superior had lost his brother under similar circumstances in Alaska about six years ago.

The Duluth News Tribune reports that Superior police shot 34-year-old Luke Anderson on Friday as he raised his gun at them. Anderson also shot himself, and an autopsy was being conducted to determine which shots caused his death.

Friends say Anderson’s brother, 31-year-old Jason Jacob Anderson, died in a shootout with police and federal marshals in 2006 in Homer, Alaska.

He had been hiding in Alaska after fleeing Minnesota, where he was wanted on federal drug charges. Forensic reports show authorities fired multiple shots in that confrontation, but Jason Anderson died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
