A 44-hour standoff between law enforcement and 39-year-old Brandon Gardas in St. Michael ended at approximately 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 22 when officers entered the residence where Gardas had barricaded himself.

This confrontation resulted in Gardas being shot and injured. He was airlifted by helicopter to a hospital in Minneapolis for treatment of his wounds.
