Minnesota BCA investigating fatal police shooting in Chisholm

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating a fatal police shooting in northern Minnesota Wednesday.

According to the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office, around 4:45 a.m. Wednesday, multiple law enforcement agencies were searching for a known suspect and vehicle, believed to be in the Hibbing or Chisholm area. The suspect was allegedly wanted in connection to a felony crime in Morrison County.

Around 7:15 a.m., a deputy found the suspect vehicle, left unoccupied, in Chisholm. The sheriff's office says officers then responded to the 200 block of Central Avenue South, where they made contact with the suspect.

At least one law enforcement officer shot the suspect, who died at the scene, according to the sheriff's office.

"Involved officers and the subject's name are being withheld at this time," the sheriff's office wrote in the news release. "The BCA will determine if squad and body cameras captured the incident."

The sheriff's office says no law enforcement officials were injured in the incident. The search for the suspect involved the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office, Minnesota State Patrol and police from Hibbing, Chisholm and Virginia.

The BCA says more information will come on the shooting, and its agents and crime scene personnel were on the way to the scene Wednesday afternoon. It is standard practice for the BCA to take over cases if an officer or officers fatally shoot someone.
