FBI agent shot and killed armed suspect in Minneapolis
- FBI agents shot and killed a man while trying to serve an arrest warrant in Minneapolis Thursday afternoon.
- The subject of the warrant, identified by Minneapolis Police Chief Brian O’Hara as Chue Feng Yang, barricaded himself inside the home.
- Investigators say the Yang was armed and had a history of trouble with the police, including two animal abuse cases in the last two years.
- Around noon Yang emerged from the house with a female hostage allegedly held at gunpoint. Federal agents determined Yang was an “immediate threat” to the woman’s life and shot him.
Yang was sought in connection to a carjacking warrant. The search warrant details that the arrest warrant is connected to a January incident in Little Canada where a group in a stolen vehicle threw a puppy out the window while fleeing law enforcement.
The chase ended with a PIT maneuver by officers with Yang fleeing from a passenger seat, the warrant alleges. Officials say his cell phone was found in the stolen truck.
