MINNEAPOLIS— The man officers were searching for when they were confronted with gunfire at a Minnetonka home last week is now in custody.

Four Hennepin County sheriff’s deputies executed a warrant at a home in the 13000 block of Crestwood Drive East.

When they knocked on the door, 28-year-old Clint Hoyhtya opened fire with an assault rifle, the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said. He was not the subject of the original arrest warrant.

The four deputies returned fire and retreated to set up a perimeter.
