'Officer down:' Two deputies injured, 28-year-old man dead after firefight in Minnetonka

Two Hennepin County Sheriff deputies sustained non-life-threatening injuries and a 28-year-old man is dead after an exchange of gunfire in a Minnetonka neighborhood late Wednesday morning.

The deputies were executing a warrant in the west metro suburb around 11:18 a.m. when the gunfight broke out, Hennepin County Sheriff Dawanna Witt said during a news conference about five hours after the altercation. One of the deputies was transported to the hospital for "very serious injuries," Witt said. The other was treated for injuries resulting from gunfire and released on scene, she said.

Law enforcement leaders at the news conference declined to provide many details as to what happened, including what precipitated the shooting or how the "armed individual" died.
