MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Crowds vandalized buildings and stole from businesses in Minneapolis' Uptown neighborhood after officials said a man wanted for illegally possessing a gun was fatally shot by authorities.

Minneapolis police spokesman John Elder said in an email to reporters early Friday that people vandalized ``numerous'' buildings and looted some. A dumpster was burned and windows were smashed.

Arrest totals weren't immediately available.

The U.S. Marshals Service says a task force was trying to arrest the man on a state warrant for being a felon in possession of a firearm. A statement says the man, who was in a parked car, didn't comply with law enforcement and ``produced a handgun`` before task force members fired upon him.

The shooting is under investigation.
