A Minneapolis police officer fired on a suspect during a foot chase Friday evening on the city’s North Side after the man pulled a gun on pursuing officers, authorities said.

No one was injured in the incident.

An 18-year-old suspect was arrested and booked into the Hennepin County jail, where he is awaiting charges of assault and being a felon in possession of a firearm. The Star Tribune typically does not name suspects until charges have been filed.

The altercation began just after 7 p.m. near Aldrich and 31st avenues N., where police spotted a large crowd congregating. Officers made contact with the group and spotted a man with a handgun.

He fled on foot, prompting a brief chase. During the pursuit, the suspect ignored verbal commands to drop the firearm, said police spokesman John Elder. An officer fired a single shot after the man pulled the gun, Elder said.

The bullet did not hit the man, and the suspect dropped his weapon before surrendering to police.

A handgun was recovered on a nearby lawn, according to emergency dispatch audio. Responding officers reported bullet damage to a house on the 2900 block of Bryant Avenue N.

One officer has been placed on standard administrative leave. The department plans to view body camera footage of the incident.
