DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - A Duluth Police officer is on paid administrative leave as a shooting incident is investigated by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. At 3:49 a-m on Monday, Police were called to a residence in the 3200 block of Piedmont Avenue on a domestic disturbance. Officers were advised that a 34 year old man had cut himself with a knife and was bleeding. While talking to the wife of the man, police noticed the man run to the basement where he locked himself in a room. Officers heard the subject says that he wanted to die and had about a half hour left until he bled out. Police requested the subject to come out of the room several times but he refused. After forcing the door open, a canine was deployed and officers ordered the man to drop the knife. The subject did not comply and an officer fired his weapon. The man was taken to Essentia St. Mary's Hospital for treatment of his injuries and is in critical but stable condition. The officer who fired the shot is a seven year veteran of the department.
