Two men arrested after shooting at Minneapolis police officer

Two men were arrested early Tuesday morning near an apartment complex in Minneapolis after a shot was fired at an officer.

The shot was fired around 1 a.m. at the 2400 block of Ogema Place when Minneapolis police officers were approached by a nearby resident with a complaint of two people drinking alcohol in a SUV behind the building, according to Minneapolis Police, reports WCCO.

According to FOX9, when one officer approached the vehicle, the shot was fired and the vehicle sped off. The SUV then crashed into a courtyard of the building and the two passengers fled the scene on foot.

The officers chased the suspects and arrested Vincent Rosendo Macedonio, 23, and Jerome Lee Barney, 25, after receiving additional help from K-9 units, according to WCCO.

Both suspects are being held at Hennepin County Jail facing charges of second degree assault and weapons charges, according to WCCO.

A loaded shotgun was later found in the SUV and a semi-automatic handgun was found at the scene where the vehicle was parked at the time the officers approached the vehicle, according to FOX9.

No injuries were reported from the incident.
