Officer Shot, Man Killed During Domestic Distrubance Response

WOODBURY, MN – Late Thursday night, a man was shot and killed and a Woodbury police officer was wounded after police responded to a domestic disturbance.

Police said officers were called to a residence about 11:30 p.m. Police said a Woodbury officer was shot and suffered serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

Police said a man was then shot and was pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities haven’t said who shot the man or if he was the person who shot the officer.

The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is leading the investigation.

Neighbors on Braemar Lane heard the gunshots.

“There were at least a few rounds. Then there was a break, then there were a few more rounds,” said Andrew Ream, estimating that at least a dozen shots were fired.

Ream said he understood that police had responded to a domestic dispute and that an officer was shot and taken away in an ambulance.

Later, at about 12:45 a.m., a body was taken out of the house to a hearse.

Mandy Ream said she called 911 and was told to lock her doors.

“It’s a safe neighborhood,” she said, adding that she didn’t know the people in the house. “It’s the first time that anything like this has happened.”

Officer-down calls are exceedingly rare. In the most recent in the Twin Cities, North St. Paul officer Richard Crittenden, 57, was shot to death on Labor Day 2009 while responding to a domestic disturbance.

Staff writer Vince Tuss and the Associated Press contributed to this report.
