WEST ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Police in Minnesota say a man wanted in the shooting death of an officer is in custody after being shot by police.
St. Paul police spokesman Sgt. Paul Paulos says 39-year-old Brian Fitch Sr. got out of a minivan firing at officers Wednesday evening. Police returned fire, striking Fitch and a woman who was with him.
Paulos says Fitch's condition is unknown. The woman suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
A daylong manhunt was underway for Fitch in the killing of Mendota Heights police officer Scott Patrick. Patrick was fatally shot while making a traffic stop in West St. Paul. He was the first Mendota Height's police officer to be slain in the line of duty.
Mendota Heights is a St. Paul suburb of about 11,000 people.
