WOODBURY, Minn. — Police in Woodbury shot and injured a man late Sunday morning after the man called 911 saying he wanted police to kill him, officials said.
The shooting occurred about 11:30 a.m. July 14 in the 7000 block of Highpointe Road, according to Woodbury Public Safety.
The man called 911 and said he was “having homicidal feelings” and that he “wants to die,” repeatedly telling dispatchers to “Come kill me,” a news release said.
Officers arrived less than 10 minutes later and found the man in the street. He “took a shooting stance directed toward officers,” the release said, though it’s not clear whether the man had a weapon.
Police fired both lethal and “less lethal” munitions at the man, injuring him. He was taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul where he was listed in stable condition Sunday.
Woodbury is on the eastern edge of the Twin Cities.
No officers were injured, the release said.
The incident is under investigation by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.
