Body camera video shows Minnetonka man shooting at deputies several times before dying in firefight

Law enforcement body-worn camera video released Wednesday afternoon shows a man with a high-powered rifle firing several volleys of gunfire at sheriff's deputies last week in a Minnetonka neighborhood before they took cover, returned fire and killed him.

The firefight on April 10 left 28-year-old Clint Hoyhtya dead at the home where he lived, one deputy shot and wounded and another injured by shrapnel, according to the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA).

The deputies were there with a warrant to arrest a different man, who turned out to not be there when they knocked and identified themselves before the midday gun battle erupted in the 13400 block of E. Crestwood Drive, according to the BCA.
