The Robbinsdale police officer who shot and wounded an 18-year-old woman who had a knife has been identified.

Police named Sgt. Thomas Rothfork on Monday, adding that he has been with the department since 1995.

Rothfork was one of the police officers who responded to a call at the 3700 block of Hubbard Avenue N., in Robbinsdale on April 16.

When they arrived, they said they were told there was a fight involving at least two women.

According to a Hennepin County criminal complaint filed Friday, Tania Harris "burst" out of the apartment door, chasing a woman with a knife and screaming that she was going to kill her.

The complaint, which charged Harris with second-degree assault, says ­Rothfork ordered Harris to stop and drop the knife, but she didn't stop running or drop the weapon. He fired twice, wounding Harris.

She remains hospitalized at North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale. Rothfork has been put on paid administrative leave, a standard procedure as the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office continues to investigate the use of force.

On Friday, Harris' family called the shooting excessive and said Harris had a kitchen knife because she was defending herself from three people who were threatening her.

Her parents said then that the 18-year-old was shot within 5 feet of the officer. Black Lives Matter Minneapolis also held a rally last week, pushing for police to be prosecuted.
