An officer-involved shooting left one dead in Burnsville, Minnesota on Sunday afternoon. Police officers with the Burnsville Police Department responded to calls of an armed suspect involved in a carjacking. Upon officer's arrival, the suspect attempted to carjack a second individual and proceeded to fire multiple shots at officers as they responded to the scene, according to the Star-Tribune.

The Burnsville Police Department issued a press release Sunday afternoon confirming the suspect was fatally shot by an officer with the Burnsville Police Department after multiple rounds of shots were allegedly fired at the officers.

According to the Burnsville Police Department, officers encountered the suspect after crashing a car that had stolen plates. The individuals involved partook in a second carjacking where they held a woman at gunpoint then began firing shots at officers.

The suspect was killed in the shootout and pronounced dead upon arrival at Hennepin County Medical Center. Minnesota Department of Transportation caught the incident on camera which appears to show footage of the suspect pointing a gun at a motorist.

During the time of the officer-involved shooting, protesters were gathered near the home of Governor Tim Waltz (D-MN) and were taking a knee in honor of the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis Police Department when they first learned of the shooting, according to The Patch.

Protesters insinuated on moving the demonstration outside the premises of the shooting near the I-35 W exit and Highway 13 but organizers encouraged individuals to keep the protest in Brooklyn Center, which has been at the height of continuous riots due to a separate officer-involved shooting earlier in the week after an officer mistook a Taser as a firearm.

This story is developing and the suspect has not yet been identified.
