Man Goes on Crime Spree: Kidnaps, Rapes Woman, Carjacks Multiple Vehicle, Holds A Family at Gunpoint, Shoots Out with Police and Finally Kills Himself in Minnesota – WATCH:

The Ramsey County Medical Examiner identified the man who died during the incident as 34-year-old Noah Ante Erickson of White Bear Lake. The man died of suicide due to a gunshot wound, according to the medical examiner.

Early Monday morning, Erickson kidnapped a woman at gunpoint from the parking lot of her Maplewood workplace and forced her to drive them to her St. Paul residence. There, sources say he tied up the victim and a housemate and sexually assaulted one of them. The suspect then stole a vehicle from the home and fled. Once free, one of the female victims called 911 to report what had happened.

Erickson abandoned the woman’s vehicle in a Cottage Grove neighborhood and carjacked another vehicle at gunpoint from a man in that neighborhood.

Erickson then abandoned the second vehicle a few blocks away and entered a nearby home. There were two adults and two children inside at the time. Erickson held the couple at gunpoint and, a short time later, he stole a pickup truck from the home.

He drove around police barricades and across yards, eventually crashing into a tree several houses away. Erickson then exited the vehicle and “exchanged gunfire during a confrontation with law enforcement before turning the gun on himself,” officials said.
