An Oakdale police officer is recovering after being shot during an incident Thursday morning in which another man died.

The officer, who hasn't been identified, was shot in the arm on the 2700 block of Granite Avenue around 8 a.m., KSTP reports.

According to MPR, police say he was serving a search warrant along with a member of the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension when they encountered a male subject.

At that point, "a weapon or weapons were used," a press release tweeted out by multiple reporters says.

What exactly led to the confrontation, who used a weapon, and what those weapons were, isn't detailed.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office says the man was taken to Regions Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The officer – who is not being identified at this time – was also taken there with non-life threatening injuries, according to the sheriff's office.

An employee with the Washington County Sheriff's Office commented on BringMeTheNews' Facebook post about the shooting, saying the officer is in stable condition and could be released Thursday night.

St. Paul Police Department is investigating the shooting, Oakdale police told BringMeTheNews, because of the presence of a BCA agent at the incident.

The St. Paul Police Department told BringMeTheNews any additional information will be released on its Twitter account.
