Officers injured while responding to burglary in Brooklyn Park; 3 arrested

The incident happened early Thursday morning in Brooklyn Park.

A suspect in a burglary of a Brooklyn Park business fled police, ramming their vehicle into a squad car, injuring some of the officers, while another suspect fled on foot. 

The incident began around 3:37 a.m. on Thursday, April 29, when Brooklyn Park officers responded to a business alarm on the 8700 block of Wyoming Avenue North, a police department alert says.

Police found forced entry into the business and heard people inside. They were setting up a perimeter when the two suspects fled. 

One of the suspects fled in a vehicle and police pursued, using a PIT maneuver to attempt to stop the vehicle, the alert says. The suspect "rammed" a squad car, causing minor injuries to "some" of the officers. Details on their injuries and how many officers were hurt haven't been released. 

The suspect's vehicle was "boxed in" and the suspect was taken into custody, police said.

The second suspect had fled on foot, with officers pursuing him on foot and taking him into custody. 

A third person was found to be an accomplice. Police located them in a nearby business and they were taken into custody. 

Brooklyn Park PD was assisted by "several" nearby agencies.  

No other details about the incident or the suspects have been released.
