 WOODBURY, MN (AP) - Police say one person is dead after a standoff at a
hotel in Woodbury.
 
 Officers were called to the Red Roof Inn about 1:10 a.m. Friday. Responding
officers found a disturbance in one of the hotel rooms. Police say while
officers were investigating, someone fired a gunshot and three officers returned
fire.
 
 One person was taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul and later died. That
person has not been identified. Authorities haven't said whether the victim was
shot. Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension spokeswoman Jill Oliveira says
the person who died was not an officer.
 
 The three officers who fired their weapons will be placed on administrative
leave.
 
 Woodbury police say the Washington County SWAT Team took a suspect into custody
about 5 a.m. One SWAT officer was treated for a minor injury during the
incident. The BCA is interviewing the officers on scene and other individuals
who were in the motel room.
