A Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) camera shows a pursuit involving police on I-94 East heading toward downtown Minneapolis around 3 a.m. Another camera angle then shows deputies using flashlights as they search the roadway for evidence.
The Hennepin County Sheriff's Office on Thursday afternoon said at about 2:30 a.m., Brooklyn Center Police officers responded to reports of armed burglars on the 1100 block of 57th Avenue North. A deputy in the area spotted a vehicle that matched the description of the suspect vehicle and tried to stop them.
The suspect vehicle took off, which led to a police chase. The Sheriff's Office said the deputy's squad vehicle was hit by gunfire during the pursuit.
The deputy wasn't hurt. The Sheriff's Office said law enforcement did not fire their weapons.
Officers located an abandoned car near Lake Nokomis at East 56th and 31st Avenue South. It is unclear if anyone has been taken into custody.
