(KMSP) - One person is in the hospital and another is in custody after an officer-involved shooting Monday morning just east of Moorhead, Minnesota.
A State Patrol Trooper responded to a crash on I-94 around 10:30 a.m. Monday. The trooper found that the car had lost control and struck the median barrier.
At some point during the encounter, the trooper discharged their weapon, striking a woman who then fled into a nearby field and was later found with a gunshot wound. According to a release, the male passenger was taken into custody and the woman was transported to the hospital. A gun was recovered at the scene.
The trooper involved was not injured and is on standard paid leave. The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension will lead the investigation.
