What’s the crime officer?

I was driving home from Southdale late last night were I just got done seeing War of the Worlds. Great movie, by the way, but that’s not what I need to talk about. I decided to take the back streets home and went up France and turned onto 50th heading East. About two blocks down, a cop car was blocking the road and forced me to turn right or left. I thought nothing of it and took a left and then a right down the next street. About five blocks down, the street forced me to turn right back towards 50th. I had to stop quickly because there was police line tape all the way across the road. I turned around and had to go all the way to Xerxes to get back on 50th. There was road flares and three cop cars at the intersection. They weren’t saying anything. I did notice some brouhaha about three blocks down, though. A bunch of cops were looking at something on the ground. They were completely blocking whatever it was.

I have looked on line for something about it and haven’t been successful. Does anyone know what happened? I am so curious!! I wonder if it was another body. Weird…

    Here is the link from the strib. It was a standoff with an armed and suicidal man.

    Hey, thanks Sarah!! It was really weird and spooky to be driving in Edina where everyone was asleep and seeing cops blocking a deserted street. Now I know why :)
