Albert Lea Police Officer Shot In Chest After Responding To Noise Complaint

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A 21-year-old man has been taken into custody after a police officer and two other men were shot on Sunday morning in Albert Lea.

The officers first arrived at the apartment complex on 800 4th Avenue South around 2:18 a.m after they received a report that fireworks or gunshots had been heard.

When they arrived, a suspect shot an ALPD officer multiple times; two shots hit the squad car and one hit the officer in the chest. The officer was able to relocate to a safe zone, assess possible injuries, and drive to the ER. The officer has since been treated and released.

For much of the morning, there was a shelter-in-place order in effect around 800 4th Avenue South and Front Street West. The shelter-in-place was lifted around 11 a.m.
