A woman is dead after an alleged shootout with Minnesota officials, and she is possibly a California resident.

A heavily-traveled section of highway in a Minneapolis suburb was shut down for hours Thursday afternoon because of the incident.

Media reports from the Minneapolis area state the woman was driving down I-394 and was allegedly shooting at cops. At some point cops returned fire, killing the woman.

The car the woman was driving is registered to a California resident, however FOX40 has not confirmed if the woman who was killed on the Minnesota highway is the owner of the car.
