MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — St. Paul police say one of their officers shot a man Saturday night in the North End neighborhood.
It happened at about 9:15 p.m. on the 1000 block of Rice Street. The victim was taken to Regions Hospital and is in stable condition.
According to SPPD, officers had been looking for the man in connection to a domestic incident that had happened an hour and a half earlier near Rice Street and Maryland Avenue West.
They found him in a dumpster in an alley. They tried to talk him out and deployed PepperBall, which is an irritant similar to pepper spray.
The man then climbed out of the dumpster and ran towards the officers. The officers used Tasers and a K9 in an effort to stop him; one officer then shot him.
SPPD says the man was shot at least twice.
No officers were hurt in the shooting. All who were involved in the shooting will be placed on administrative leave, which is a standard procedure.
Supervisors were called to the scene after the incident and gathered information. The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is conducting an investigation.
