A man firing an assault-style rifle was wounded Sunday in a gunfight with police at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. The man began firing into the air when a guard kept him from entering a restricted area, airport Police Chief James Welna said. Police chased him to the baggage claim area, where he fired more than 20 rounds in an exchange of fire with three officers. The gunman was wounded when the battle moved outside the terminal.

A freshman opened fire at a high school Wednesday, killing one student and critically wounding a second before a teacher apparently talked the boy into dropping his gun, authorities said. The boy was taken into custody after the late-morning shooting at Rocori High School in Cold Spring, a small town about 60 miles northwest of the Twin Cities. Police said the 15-year-old, who was not identified, was cooperating with authorities, but the motive was not immediately known.

Police, gangs and black community leaders worked together to quell a crowd angered by the shooting of a black teen-ager and by false rumors that his assailant was white or a police officer. About 500 people gathered at the scene of the shooting Thursday night. They scuffled with police, beat a television news crew and shot a minister. But the crowd was dispersed by neighborhood activists, ministers and gang leaders who took to the streets at the request of police.

The woman, who worked for Magnetic Data, was shot by the man after they argued in a car as she was coming to work about 7 a.m., said Julie Meinzer, a police spokeswoman. The man, who did not work at the company, then shot himself. The two arrived at the company parking lot in this Minneapolis suburb with another woman who worked at the firm.

Louisville's Dwayne Morton was too much for Minnesota to handle on Sunday, leading the Cardinals to a 60-55 victory in the second round of the West Regional. Morton tied an NCAA regional record by making all five of his three-point shots and led all scorers with 26 points. Other than a free throw in the closing seconds, Morton did not miss, making all seven of his shots from the field and seven of eight free throws.
