12:30 P.M. UPDATE
Minneapolis Police Department has confirmed that the police shooting happened just after 8:20 a.m. in north Minneapolis.
Officers were alerted to a report of a "gun pointing incident," and a minute or so later the suspect and vehicle was located. That led to an attempt to stop the driver, who fled and crashed at the intersection of N. Dowling and N. Vincent avenues.
Police described what happened next:
"At that location, gunfire was exchanged between the suspect and officers. The shooting stopped, and when safe to do so, officers deployed less lethal munitions. The suspect was taken into custody and transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. No officers were injured physically during this incident."
The incident is now being investigated by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.
Authorities are at the scene of a police shooting in north Minneapolis Thursday morning.
Details are limited, but the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension has confirmed that it has been tasked with leading the investigation into the shooting.
According to reporters at the scene, the incident happened in a residential area near the intersection of North Dowling Avenue and North Vincent Avenue.
"We have shots fired at this incident address. Officers have exchanged gunfire with the suspect and received fire," said an officer on dispatch audio obtained by MN Crime Watch. "Suspect, gun wound in the back seat."
The Star Tribune's Libor Jany is reporting that officers were in a standoff with an individual who allegedly fired a rifle at a police squad vehicle, with officers then shooting the person. Dispatch audio suggests the individual may have had an AK-47 long rifle.
Jason Rantana of KARE 11 reports that police say the individual suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
These details have yet to be officially confirmed.
It marks the third police shooting in the Twin Cities in the past 16 days, with the first happening the evening of Dec. 30, when Dolal Idd was fatally shot by police in south Minneapolis.
Another man was killed by police in Robbinsdale last week – about a mile west of where Thursday's shooting has been reported – after he allegedly charged at officers with a knife.
This is a developing story.
