The Chisago County Sheriff’s Office says law officers fired shots after the suspect was found outside the town of Harris on Monday. The man died at the scene.

The carjacking was reported that morning in North Branch. Authorities say the suspect had his 7-year-old daughter with him when the black Chevrolet Impala was taken.

Authorities say the suspect called OnStar just before 10 a.m. and asked for someone to come and get his daughter. Police say the man was making suicidal threats.
