Police Shoot Suspect After Chase In Northern Twin Cities
ANOKA (AP) — Police have shot and wounded a suspect after a high-speed chase through the northern Minneapolis suburbs.
Anoka County sheriff's Cmdr. Paul Sommer says the suspect was shot after his Audi sport car spun out on Highway 10 in Anoka Thursday afternoon.
MnDOT traffic cameras show the suspect running along the highway after leaving his car, jumping a fence and running down into a slough. Sommer says authorities spotted something in the man's hand, and a Coon Rapids police officer fired shots that disabled the suspect.
The chase began after the suspect shot and wounded a man outside a gas station in East Bethel. At times the suspect exceeded 130 mph.
Sommer says both the suspect and the victim suffered single gunshot wounds and are expected to survive.
