Minnesota man shot by police after high-speed chase in North Dakota


A Minnesota man was shot by police in North Dakota after authorities say he rammed two patrol cars during a high-speed chase.

The 43-year-old from Tracy, Minnesota,was hospitalized after the incident in the early hours of Tuesday, WDAY News reports, which started when police were called to reports of a drunk person at an Exxon convenience store in Jamestown.

The man fled, driving off southbound on Highway 281, before ramming two police cars, according to the news station. He then stopped several times, only to drive off again when officers approached.

The Associated Press reports Stutsman County Sheriff officers shot the suspect when it appeared that one of the officers was in danger of being run over by the driver.

The man has not yet been identified by police. A Jamestown police officer and a sheriff's deputy have been put on leave while the incident is investigated by the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation, AP notes.

WDAY adds that the man has been arrested for felony DUI, fleeing an officer, reckless endangerment and criminal mischief.
