Deputies Shoot Armed Man In Western MN
GARFIELD, Minn. (AP) – Sheriff’s deputies have shot a man who reportedly was armed with a shotgun and threatening others at a home in western Minnesota.
According to the Douglas County sheriff’s office, a woman called 911 Sunday night to report two unwanted guests, one of which was her son. When officers came to the home, her 30-year-old son went into the basement, refusing to cooperate. Three deputies then shot the man multiple times after the sheriff’s office says he confronted them with a gun.
The suspect was brought to St. Cloud Hospital and his current condition is unknown. A spokeswoman for the hospital says he is not currently a patient. The sheriff’s office says charges are expected, but when those charges are filed depends on his medical condition.
