Police answered a 911 call around 11 a.m. Friday. An officer knocked on the door of 8040 Claymore Ave. E. and thought he heard a gunshot from inside.

Gallahue is currently in the Dakota County Jail on numerous weapons charges. He was taken into custody by the Dakota County M.A.A.G. (Mutual Aid Assistance Group).

The man was treated for minor injuries at a hospital and released to jail staff.

No officers were hurt or discharged their weapons.
