The Twin Cities saw its second police officer-involved shooting in as many days after an incident in downtown Minneapolis early Saturday morning.

Minneapolis police spokesman John Elder said the incident happened in the area of N. 4th St. and 1st Ave., near the Pizza Luce restaurant, just before 3 a.m.

Officers were called to reports of an "individual with a gun" and after attempting to make contact with them, they fled on foot with officers in pursuit.

One of the officers then fired his weapon, hitting the suspect, who was then transported to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

A gun was recovered from the scene. Police department investigators now interviewing witnesses and reviewing video.

That area of downtown Minneapolis was the scene of two shootings earlier this month, when five people were injured in two separate incidents at Hennepin Ave. and N. 4th St., and N. 3rd St. and 2nd Ave. N.

The incident comes after another officer-involved shooting on Thursday night saw a man killed at the Arby's Restaurant in Plymouth.

The shooting happened when the suspect attempted to grab Officer Amy Therkelsen's gun from her holster after attempts to subdue him using a Taser had failed.
