Police chase ends in gunfire, death

A man died in a police chase in St. Paul Monday. Mitchell Moua was wanted on aggravated assault, false imprisonment and federal weapons charges when he was approached by St. Paul police. He fled in an SUV down 7th Street, firing at pursuing officers. His SUV crashed in front of a thrift store, and Moua was found with a gunshot wound to the head. He was pronounced dead a short time later.

The Pioneer Press added family accounts, with his father Blong Moua saying that after being released from prison, Mitchell struggled to find a job and fell back into the gang crowd.

The chronology in the Star Tribune story is very good, however it is lacking in emotional connection. The quotes from family members in the Pioneer Press add a human aspect to the detailed chronology.
