COTTAGE GROVE, Minn. (AP) – Authorities say a gunman who carjacked several vehicles, sexually assaulted a woman and briefly held a family of four hostage in their suburban St. Paul home died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, not by police gunfire.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said Tuesday night that a medical examiner determined 34-year-old Noah Ante Erickson killed himself during an exchange of gunfire with police in Cottage Grove on Monday.
