Authorities Identify Man Killed In Police Standoff
EAGAN (AP) — Authorities have identified a man who was fatally shot following a standoff with police in a St. Paul suburb.
The Ramsey County medical examiner has identified the man as 23-year-old Abdirahman Aden of Columbia Heights. The medical examiner says he died of multiple gunshot wounds.
The man fled on foot on assaulting a woman in a car in Eagan on Tuesday evening.
Officers from six law enforcement agencies tracked the man down to a commercial area and tried to negotiate with him for hours. Police say officers ordered Aden to drop his weapon but eventually shots were fired and he was hit.
Eagan Police Chief Roger New has said he doesn't know how many officers fired their weapons.
An investigation is ongoing.
