MINOT, N.D. - A Minot police officer who shot a suspect in the leg in September acted within the police department’s policies, officials said Tuesday.

The North Dakota Attorney General’s Office declined to prosecute after reviewing an investigation into the Sept. 13 officer-involved shooting.

Officer James Jabara shot a 32-year-old man while responding to a report of a suspicious person at a southeast Minot residence. The man was treated at Trinity Hospital. The North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation investigated the incident.

In addition, the Minot Police Department reviewed the shooting and determined Jabara’s actions were consistent with department policy.
