St. Paul Police have released more information in two officer-involved shootings that left two men dead and sent a policeman to the hospital.

The Star Tribune reports Officer Daniel King suffered multiple gunshot wounds after 22-year-old Chue Xiong, a theft suspect, fired a shotgun at his squad Tuesday night. Xiong was killed after officers fired back. King is in "stable" condition at Regions hospital.

In an unrelated incident Tuesday afternoon, police were assisting undercover Minneapolis narcotics investigators when 41-year-old Victor Gaddy attempted to take off in his car. The officers blocked-in Gaddy and the suspect began ramming the unmarked squad cars and ignored orders to stop.

Gaddy was shot and killed by the officers because they felt their lives were in jeopardy.

Police Chief Thomas Smith says Tuesday's shootings are part of the serious challenges police officers face everyday on the job, the Pioneer Press reports.

WCCO says its unclear how many times King was shot. Smith says the officer was conscious and talking, but in a lot of pain Wednesday morning.

The NAACP claims damage to the vehicle of the man, 41-year-old Terrance Gaddy, doesn't match up to police statements that Gaddy used his vehicle as a weapon by slamming it into police vehicles and nearly pinning an officer.
