Four people have been arrested for shooting at a Willmar police officer.

It all started shortly after 4:30 Wednesday afternoon when police were called to a reported home invasion in Willmar. The two armed suspects left just before officers arrived. More than an hour later the suspects returned, wearing masks, and assaulting an occupant of the home.

Shots were fired at a responding officer. Bullets struck the squad car and an occupied home in the neighborhood, but no one was hurt. Officers did not return fire, but gave chase on foot and all four suspects were arrested. Three handguns were recovered.
