The U.S. Marshals said preliminary information indicates task force members were attempting to arrest a man wanted on a state warrant for being a felon in possession of a firearm, when he produced a firearm. Task force members fired and attempted life-saving measures but he died at the scene.

The statement did not confirm which agencies were part of the task force.

The Minneapolis Police Department says it was not involved.
