ST. PAUL, Minn. (FOX 9) - The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating a shooting involving a law enforcement officer at a St. Paul gas station Wednesday night.
According to a tweet from the Bureau, the officer-involved shooting took place at the corner of Kittson Street and East Seventh Street. Law enforcement sources told FOX the officer involved was a U.S. marshal, and was possibly off-duty.
The person shot suffered non-life threatening injuries and no officers were injured.
Witnesses told FOX 9 they saw an apparent undercover law enforcement agent tell a man to freeze and then shoot the man in the shoulder. Witnesses say the man was alive when emergency crews took him from the scene.
“The US Marshals are aware of a shooting incident involving at least one deputy US marshal near a gas station in the St Paul area tonight," read a statement from the U.S. Marshals Service. "The incident will be investigated by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. The US Marshals Service is cooperating fully with the official review.”
The case remains under investigation.
