Man Killed After Shooting At Police

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension says eight Minneapolis police officers fired their guns during a shooting that killed a man outside a home.

The agency on Wednesday identified the officers who fired their guns along with a ninth officer who discharged less lethal munitions. Officers were called early Sunday to north Minneapolis about a man carrying a knife and shooting a gun inside of the home.

The man who died is identified as 52-year-old Chiasher Fong Vue. Authorities say Vue appeared in the doorway with a rifle and began shooting. Officers returned fire, striking him.

No officers were hurt.
