Man with ‘weapon’ shot, wounded by police at Minneapolis City Hall

Minnesota police shot and wounded an armed man inside of an interview room in Minneapolis City Hall Monday night, sparking an investigation.

The man, who was being interviewed by the Minneapolis Police Department, started hurting himself with an “edged weapon,” Fox 9 reported. Officers tried “to subdue the adult male subject” but ultimately had to discharge their weapons, Police Chief Medaria Arradondo said.

The interview room where the incident unfolded is reported to be the location of the department’s “investigation units.”

Minneapolis Police said the incident has been “contained” and noted “there’s no threat to the public.” Several officers involved in the incident have been put on paid administrative leave.

Paramedics reportedly took the man to Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis. His condition is unclear.

The state’s Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating the incident. Arrandondo said police obtained video of what transpired.
