A man committed suicide Wednesday during a standoff with police after shooting his ex-wife just outside of Pine City, the Star Tribune reported.
The man shot his ex-wife in the chest before shooting himself during a standoff with sheriff's deputies, the Pioneer Press reported. The woman had barricaded herself in the bathroom before police could arrive.
Police cornered the man in the house and tried to talk him down for almost two hours before he shot himself, the Pioneer Press reported.
A SWAT team had been called to the Brook Park home to get the woman out of the house. The standoff began after the SWAT team threw flashbang grenades inside the house in order to apprehend the attacker, the Pioneer Press reported.
The woman was admitted to a Duluth hospital and was in serious condition, the Star Tribune reported.
Identities of those involved have not been released.
