Minneapolis Police shot and wounded a carjacking suspect early Thursday morning on the city's north side.

Police responded to a kidnapping and carjacking call shortly before 4 a.m. near North 21st Avenue and Bryant Avenue North, the Minneapolis Police Department said in a news release.

One of the suspects was struck and wounded, suffering non-life threatening injuries.

According to police, a gun was recovered from the scene.

Minneapolis Police Public Information Officer John Elder told BringMeTheNews it's still early in the investigation and they're still piecing together the details of what happened.
