The homeowner who shot a suspect being chased by police in St. Paul has been arrested.

St. Paul Police Department confirmed on Tuesday evening that the 36-year-old resident had been booked into jail on suspicion of aggravated assault.

The arrest was made "based on facts uncovered by investigators, evidence, and in consultation with the Ramsey County Attorney's Office," police said.

It follows an incident on Tuesday morning that saw police chase a stolen vehicle containing multiple occupants.

The car was involved in a crash at Payne Avenue and Jenks Avenue, prompting those inside the car to flee the area.

The suspected driver was among those who ran, and police found him a short time later in the 600 block of Cook Avenue after gunshots were heard.

He was in the yard of the homeowner, suffering multiple gunshot wounds.

It's not clear if the suspect attempted to enter the homeowner's residence, but the Star Tribune's Paul Walsh tweeted a photo of a poster in the person's window that warned that trespassers would be shot.
