St. Paul police kill drug suspect in St. Paul neighborhood

| No Comments

St. Paul police shot and killed a man under investigation, after trying to pull over his car Tuesday in St. Paul's Payne-Phalen neighborhood, news sources report.

The man, whose identity was not released by police, was pulled over and took "evasive action towards the officers," said St. Paul police spokesman Sgt. Paul Paulos, Star Tribune reported.

"It was at that time that officers thought their life was in jeopardy," Paulos said. He declined to elaborate on the driver's actions or whether he was armed, Star Tribune reported.

Minneapolis police Sgt. William Paulson said that the department asked St. Paul police to stop the car in association with a drug investigation, Pioneer Press reported. About a dozen armed officers from both departments were at the scene when the shooting occurred, Star Tribune reported.

Two other men, who had been taken from the back seat, were handcuffed and placed on the curb, witnesses said. They're being detained for questioning, Pioneer Press reports.
