A 25-year-old resident of a Fairmont Park group home in Duluth was shot by a police officer after assaulting her and another officer whose gun he attempted to take away, police told Duluth News Tribune.
The man who suffered the gun shot wound was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis, the Star Tribune said. His condition was not immediately available.
According to the Duluth Tribune, the incident with the police officer happened after he assaulted a staff member at the group home earlier that day.
Duluth Police Chief Gordon Ramsay told the Star Tribune that the two officers who responded to the call discovered a fire in the home, but were met by the resident who attacked them. Ramsay said the shot was fired during the commotion.
