Police: Chanhassen Shooting May Be Gang Related

CHANHASSEN, Minn. (WCCO) — A 32-year-old man, who was assaulted Tuesday, was taken into custody after he later pistol-whipped one of his attackers and fired several rounds.

Police say Chhun Pheakdey was leaving his night shift at Emerson Rosemount around 1:30 a.m. when he was assaulted by several people. During the assault, police say Pheakdey was punched and kicked in the face and head. Pheakdey is believed to be “affiliated” with the Asian Boys Gang, according to officials.

Police say when the assailants ran off, Pheakdey allegedly chased and pistol-whipped one of the men before firing several rounds. Bullet casings were recovered by Carver County deputies near the scene but it appears no one was injured in the shooting.

Pheakdey was transported to a medical center for treatment of his injuries, before being arrested and booked into the Carver County Jail.

Police continue to investigate the incident. Anyone with information is asked to call (952) 361-1212.

    So wait, why was he booked again? “In later news, bank teller held at gunpoint shoots at bank robber and goes to jail”

      It isn’t legal to discharge a firearm in public, even if you are being attacked. It is a choice to face prosecution for discharging the weapon in order to protect yourself. Just because you are defending yourself doesn’t give you the right to fire at will.

        If you have a permit to carry you can defend yourself and discharge if being attacked

        1. What a joke says:

          you can’t chase people down and than discharge your gun…maybe you should get your facts straight!

    Oh poor chanhassen… getting the thugs too. That sucks.

    Guess people will just have to move even further out to avoid the filth.

      you can’t move far enough, as they keep following. this is one reason those terrible suburban people resist the low income housing in their neighborhoods.
