Police say four suspects kidnapped and threatened a disabled veteran during an armed carjacking that ended with one suspect being shot and injured by police early Thursday in north Minneapolis.
Officers were called to the area of 21st and Bryant Avenue North around 4 a.m. for an alleged kidnapping, said spokesman John Elder. Earlier, a resident was reportedly carjacked near 12th and Knox Avenues N. and forced into his vehicle.
Officers spotted the victim's car and during a foot chase, police fired and struck one of the suspects, who was believed to be armed, authorities said.
Two suspects were arrested, including the one who was shot, and taken to a hospital and later released, police said. Police are searching for the other two suspects and are investigating whether the suspects were involved in an earlier robbery.
It was not immediately clear if suspects fired at police. No officers were injured, Elder said.
One of the suspects had a handgun, which was recovered at the scene. Police found a second one later during the investigation, Elder said.
