DULUTH - Preliminary autopsy results indicate that Quincy Adam Pederson, the Two Harbors native who died Tuesday after a standoff with police, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.


Pederson, 38, was wanted on robbery and assault charges arising from a restaurant robbery and police shootout last week in North St. Paul. On Tuesday, he lost control of a vehicle during a chase in Cook County. Shots were fired, and Pederson was later found dead in the vehicle.
