As police tried to pull over the suspect, he led them on a high speed chase reaching speeds of 95 miles per hour.

The suspect drove against the flow of traffic several times.

Officers tried to stop the suspect by using stop sticks, and vehicle-to-vehicle contact.

The suspect pulled into the Target parking lot in Savage where he was stopped by vehicle-to-vehicle contact.

He refused to get out of the vehicle, and to show both of his hands. He told officers he had a gun.

Police fired non-lethal shots at the man, and he was hit multiple times.

The man said he wanted to talk to his wife to tell her goodbye. 

He eventually got out of his vehicle and surrendered to police.
