Storm damage reported across Minnesota. Armed man shot by Minneapolis police

Severe thunderstorms battered much of northern and central Minnesota Wednesday afternoon and evening, knocking out power to thousands of homes. At least four preliminary tornado reports came into National Weather Service offices, including one near Camp Ripley and two near Mille Lacs Lake.

And overnight, the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension responded to a use-of-force incident in Minneapolis. Police Chief Brian O'Hara told local news outlets an armed man died in the Longfellow neighborhood after being shot by police.
