MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (KNSI) Minneapolis police say officers shot and wounded a suspect who had fired a handgun at them.

Police responded late Wednesday night to reports of shots fired. They stopped a car that was leaving the scene, on the suspicion it may have been involved in the gunfire. The car stopped and a passenger got out and started running. Police say as they gave chase the man fired a handgun at them. They returned fire and wounded him. He was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive. His name has not been released.

The four officers involved are on three-day paid administrative leave, as is standard practice in shooting-related incidents.
