A Waseca police officer and a suspect were shot Monday night after reports of a disturbance in a residential neighborhood, according to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA).
The officer was flown by air ambulance to North Memorial Health Hospital in Robbinsdale. An unidentified suspect was taken to the same hospital by ambulance. Officials did not release information about their conditions.
The incident happened after 8 p.m. at a residence on the 900 block of 3rd Avenue SE. in Waseca.
A woman and a man who answered the phone at a residence where police had converged said they could not say anything about it. “We are in a crime scene area and … we know nothing,” the woman said.
Waseca police, the State Patrol and the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension were among the agencies responding to the scene — a residential area of the city. Waseca is about 70 miles south of the Twin Cities.
The BCA said it will release more details Tuesday morning at a news conference at the Waseca Police Department.
