Man injured in officer-involved shooting in St. Paul


St. Paul police shot and injured a man as they sought to detain him Sunday night, WCCO reported.

Police were pursuing the 53-year-old man in connection with felony domestic assault and active warrants, KSTP reported.

The shooting happened at 9:08 p.m. near North Earl Street and East Geranium Avenue, the stations reported. Police said they were trying to apprehend the man when he drove in the direction of an officer who was on foot, KSTP reported. That officer fired the shot that hit the man, who continued driving but eventually crashed in an alley, KSTP reported. The man tried to run, but officers caught him, KSTP reported.

The suspect was taken to Regions Hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.

That shooting was unrelated to another shooting late Sunday in St. Paul in which a 17-year-old was critically injured, FOX reported.
