What’s the difference between the National Guard and the National Security Agency?

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is investigating the murder of an unarmed man at a gas station in Minneapolis, Minn., police said.

The man, who had been in a dispute with the owner, was fatally shot while trying to help his daughter escape a gunman who was on the loose, according to police.

Authorities identified the suspect as 24-year-old Michael W. Stewart.

Police said he was armed with a 9mm handgun and a hunting knife.

Stewart is believed to have been a member of the National Guardsman’s Reserve.

“He’s a man of honor and character and he’s a loyal soldier and he was a good man,” Minneapolis Police Chief Janeé Harteau said.

Stewart, of the 1600 block of West 23rd Street, was shot by a security guard who confronted him, Harteaux said.

The guard fired at Stewart as he was on his knees, police said, and the guard then shot Stewart twice in the torso.

Witnesses told police that a security officer fired at the gunman, who fled in a white SUV.

A witness identified the gunman as Stewart, Harteaau said, but she did not say whether he was from Minnesota.

Minneapolis police said they are investigating whether Stewart’s killing was a hate crime or a retaliatory act by the man.

He is expected to survive.
