Becker County deputies shoot, injure man; officer also hurt

Law enforcement officers shot and injured a man who had threatened to hurt himself Saturday night at a residence just north of Frazee, according to a news release from the Becker County Sheriff's Office.

A deputy was also injured in the incident.

Authorities responded to a call about 10 p.m. requesting a welfare check on a possibly suicidal man at a home on County Road 29, the release said.

Officers learned that the man told 911 dispatchers he may have tried to overdose on drugs and threatened to harm himself.

The man wouldn't leave the home, despite instructions by law enforcement to do so, the release said, so officers entered the home after 45 minutes.

Deputies used a Taser and a firearm on the man, injuring him. He was taken to Essentia Hospital in Fargo for medical treatment.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension will investigate.
