Mpls. police shoot, wound man who fired at them

Posted:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Minneapolis police say officers shot and wounded a suspect who had fired a handgun at them.

Police responded late Wednesday night to reports of shots fired. They stopped a car that was leaving the scene, on the suspicion it may have been involved in the gunfire.

The car stopped and a passenger got out and started running.

Police say as they gave chase the man fired a handgun at them. They returned fire and wounded him. He was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive.

His name has not been released.

The four officers involved are on three-day paid administrative leave, as is standard practice in shooting-related incidents.
