Police: Minn. officers stabbed after fake 911 call
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A man accused of stabbing two Minneapolis park police officers told police he placed a fake 911 call so he could ambush officers, authorities said Wednesday.
The 38-year-old man was shot by a Minneapolis park police officer after the attack and was under guard Wednesday at Hennepin County Medical Center, where he was in stable condition.
Minneapolis police Sgt. Bill Palmer said authorities got a call late Tuesday about a robbery at knifepoint near Minnehaha Parkway West and Bryant Avenue South.
Two park police officers responded — a man and a woman. When they approached the man, who they thought was a victim, he stabbed the male officer in the chest, then stabbed the female officer in the upper back.
The male officer shot the man to defend his partner.
