Minneapolis park police confronted a robbery suspect late Tuesday night, and the suspect stabbed a female officer, the Star Tribune reports. Another park police officer shot and injured the suspect, police said.
The 911 call may have been made in an attempt to lure the officers to the dangerous situation, KARE 11 reports, citing a police spokesman.
The incident happened Tuesday shortly before midnight, near 53rd Street, Bryant Avenue S. and Minnehaha Parkway.
The officer was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center for treatment for what police say are non-life-threatening injuries, including a stab wound and laceration to the head, KARE 11 reports.
Police told KARE 11 this was the first officer-involved shooting for the Minneapolis Park Police Department.
Police said the woman who was stabbed is a four-year veteran, and the male officer who shot the suspect is a nine-year veteran, WCCO reported:
