Winona Police Shoot Man After Chase
WINONA-- State investigators are reviewing a police shooting in southeastern Minnesota that left a man wounded.
The incident began early Saturday morning when two officers tried to pull over a vehicle for erratic driving. The driver pointed a gun at the officers. Both officers fired, hitting the man once. He then fled, leading police on a five-mile chase.
Deputies stopped him by deploying spike strips. After an hour of negotiations, the man got out of the car and was taken into custody without incident. He was transported to a Rochester hospital and treated for a neck injury. It wasn't clear if the injury was caused by gunfire.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating. The agency's involvement is standard after any officer-involved shooting.
