An armed suspect jumped out of a moving vehicle he had stolen and ran onto a busy Burnsville highway, where he tried to steal another vehicle before police fatally shot him Sunday afternoon.
The man ran in front of a moving SUV on Hwy. 13 near Interstate 35W, waving what appeared to be a gun at the driver, who drove across the median and into oncoming traffic to escape. No one was hurt.
In a statement, Burnsville police said the suspect, believed to be a white male in his 20s, was taken to HCMC, where he was later pronounced dead.
