The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension's agents and crime scene investigators are headed to Coon Rapids Monday after an officer-involved shooting.
Coon Rapids Police Chief Brad Wise confirmed that officers shot an armed individual who was the subject of a 911 call reporting a suicidal man.
"I know the officers showed tremendous restraint and were really desperate to avoid using deadly force," Wise said. "Unfortunately they had to use their firearms in this case. Now we're all hoping he's going to survive."
The man was Mercy Hospital where his condition is unknown.
"He was armed with a handgun," Wise said, via KARE 11. "The handgun was in his possession for the several minutes that officers were trying to negotiate with him as he was moving throughout the neighborhood."
This is a developing story.
