Wounded, he then fled on foot, and was found soon after hiding under another vehicle. He was arrested, and officers recovered a handgun.

The suspect, who is in his 40s, was taken to Hennepin Health with a non-life threatening gunshot wound.

No officers or bystanders were hurt. The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is leading the investigation.
