A 28-year-old Minneapolis officer has died and another is in critical condition after an exchange of gunfire with a suspect Thursday evening in south Minneapolis, sources said.

Four other people also were said to have been hit by gunfire in the chaotic scene. Investigators cordoned off the neighborhood around an apartment building in the 2200 block of Blaisdell Av. S., in Minneapolis' Whittier neighborhood.

Minneapolis police sent out an alert just before 6 p.m. telling residents to avoid the area of 22nd Street and Blaisdell because of an active incident.
