Conflicts between armed suspects and law enforcement agencies in St. Michael, Minnesota entered Wednesday 35 hours, officials said.

The event began to unfold on Tuesday morning when a Wright County lawmaker was sent to Central Avenue by phone about a man holding a rifle and discussing with a woman. Police then surrounded a 500-block house on Central Avenue, and the suspect fired several ammunition at law enforcement agencies, according to a statement from the Wright County Sheriff’s Office.

According to the sheriff’s office, people living in the immediate vicinity of the house were informed to evacuate because of “the unstable nature of the incident.”

According to the sheriff’s office, some roads in the area have been closed due to security concerns and people are being urged to stay away from the area.

The suspect is a 39-year-old man who has been arrested for domestic violence and a felony convicted of possessing firearms.

Other law enforcement agencies, including the Wright County Sheriff’s Office and the SWAT team, remained on the scene as of Wednesday at 1:00 pm.

Chianna Faye, who lives in the neighborhood, said she heard police trying to negotiate with the suspect.

“Raise his hand and get out of the front door. We want to get you food and water and check for any injuries you may have,” she says. I heard that.

“I hope it’s over soon and he surrenders himself and gets the help he really needs,” Faye said.
