ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) – Two men were arrested in Wednesday afternoon after one brandished a handgun at a St. Paul Police officer, authorities said.

The incident happened just after noon on the 1800 block of Stillwater Avenue. Police, working on an ongoing investigation in the area, got a tip that a group of men in the area might have a weapon. When they arrived and encountered the group, a suspect was seen with a gun and refused an officer’s demands to drop it.

That prompted the officer to fire his weapon. The suspect fled the scene and was arrested a short time later. None of the suspects was shot in the incident.

Two guns were recovered by officers at the scene, prompting two arrests. Deandre Traville Parker Thomas and Quincy Morrow, both 23 of St. Paul, were booked into the Ramsey County Jail on suspicion of an ineligible person in possession of a firearm.

The officer involved in the incident is being placed on a three-day administrative leave, which is normal procedure for this incident.
