A man was shot in the face Saturday afternoon following a road-rage incident that ended in the parking lot of the Isanti Police Department, north of the Twin Cities.
Isanti Police Chief Ron Sager said it wasn't exactly clear why the two men were in the police parking lot, which is just west of Hwy. 65.
Neither the shooter nor the victim was an officer, he said. The dispute appears to have started as a road-rage dispute on Hwy. 65, Sager said.
The shooter was booked into the Isanti County jail and was awaiting formal charges. The victim was conscious and airlifted to Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis, police said.
Christine Hill, an Isanti resident, said she heard shots around 4 p.m. as she stopped at a nearby thrift store.
When she and her daughter approached the scene, they saw two motorcycles and two men, one of whom appeared to be in the custody of an officer and another on the ground without his shirt on.
