An officer was shot in Brooklyn Park on Friday evening as police responded to a domestic disturbance.

The incident happened shortly after 10 p.m. at a home in the 6500 block of Georgia Ave. N., with police called to a report of a man who had an order of protection against him.

The man was parked at the caller's home, with police initiating contact before the suspect and two officers exchanged gunfire.

One officer was shot, with the suspect fleeing before being arrested a short time later following an "extensive" search, per Brooklyn Park PD.

The suspect was also found to have been shot, sustaining a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.

The police officer's wound is also non-life-threatening, and the officer was treated at North Memorial Hospital.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension has taken over the investigation, as is customary in instances of officer-involved shootings.
