Undercover Minn. officer shot in both legs in road rage incident

COON RAPIDS, Minn.  Authorities say an undercover Robbinsdale police officer was shot in both legs during an incident in Coon Rapids this afternoon.

The on-duty plainclothes officer was outside his unmarked vehicle when he was shot after becoming involved in an altercation with a man driving an SUV near the intersection of Foley Boulevard and 99th Avenue.

Investigators are trying to determine what led to the shooting.

Coon Rapids Deputy Police Chief Tim Snell says he didn't know why the Robbinsdale officer was in Coon Rapids.

Police say the man and woman who were in the SUV were taken into custody at a nearby gas station across Highway Ten where they went to phone authorities to report the incident.

The wounded officer is reported in satisfactory condition at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis. His name isn't being released because he works undercover.
