2 officers shot in Minneapolis, suspect dead

The officers were fired upon while clearing a house the suspect had run into

By PoliceOne Staff

MINNEAPOLIS — Two officers were shot while chasing a suspect on the city’s south side and returned fire, killing the suspect.

The suspect allegedly exited his vehicle and ran from officers before fleeing into a house nearby, according to CBS Minnesota. He fired upon the officers when they attempted to clear the home.

“Our neighbor…found a broken window in the basement,” said Elizabeth Thompson, a witness. “So the officers went to the basement, and I think they went in the house and searched the house…then, all of a sudden, everyone was shouting. They said, ‘Shots fired, shots fired. Officer down.’”

Both officers are reportedly in stable condition and suffered gun shot wounds in the lower extremities. They were taken to a nearby hospital.

As another squad responded to the shooting, it collided with a motorcycle, killing one of the bike's two passengers, according to the article. 

No names have been released.
