Man Arrested After Gunfight With Brooklyn Park Police
BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. (AP) — Police in Minneapolis suburb say an armed intruder has been arrested after exchanging gunfire with an officer.
Brooklyn Park police said they responded to a home Thursday afternoon on a report of man in a home who had a gun and was breaking windows.
