Police Chase Ends When Gunman Takes his Own Life

Man was fleeing police on a motorcycle

Authorities say a police chase in eastern Minnesota ended when a man with a gun fleeing on a motorcycle took his own life.

Wyoming police attempted to stop the man shortly after 10 p.m. Monday after receiving information that he had been involved in an incident with a gun in the Anoka County city of Oak Grove.

Authorities say the 38-year-old Coon Rapids man led police on a five-mile chase which came to an end when he crashed his motorcycle into a fence at an Interstate 35 wayside in the Washington County city of Forest Lake.

Officials say he took his own life with a handgun and that no shots were fired by law enforcement officers at the scene.
