Man shot by police dies in Bloomington

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — Police have shot and killed a stabbing suspect at an apartment building in Bloomington.

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — Police have shot and killed a stabbing suspect at an apartment building in Bloomington.

Police spokesman Cmdr. Mark Stehlik says officers were called to the apartments Thursday afternoon and found a man had been stabbed.

Police say they confronted the stabbing suspect, who was carrying two knives. Stehlik says one officer shot and killed the suspect in the hallway of the apartment, but would not say what led up to the suspect's death.

The officer is on paid administrative leave, which is standard in officer-involved shootings. The name of the suspect will be released by the Hennepin County medical examiner's office.

The man who was stabbed was taken to a hospital, but his condition is unknown.
