    Minnesota man who shot 3 first responders wasn’t allowed to have guns – By AP (Scripps News) / Feb 19, 2024

    Court records show Minnesota barred the man from possessing guns after he pleaded guilty in 2008 to second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon.

    A man who died after fatally shooting two police officers and a firefighter in a wooded Minneapolis-area neighborhood wasn’t legally allowed to have guns and was entangled in a yearslong dispute over the custody and financial support of his three oldest children, court records show.

    Authorities on Monday identified Shannon Gooden, 38, as the man who opened fire on police in the affluent suburb of Burnsville after they responded to a domestic disturbance call early Sunday. The caller reported that he had barricaded himself in his home with family members, including seven children aged 2 to 15. He was found dead inside the home hours later.

    His standoff with police came only two days before a scheduled district court hearing over his ongoing legal disputes with the mother of his three oldest children. Online court records show that those children spent most nights with him, but that he still wanted to go back to court. The records do not say why.
