The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension has identified the two Woodbury police officers involved in a July 14 shooting.
Officers shot and injured a man late Sunday morning after the man called 911 saying he wanted police to kill him, officials said. When officers arrived, the man exited the residence. A "confrontation" followed, during which officer Brett Roddy fired beanbag rounds and officer Brian Cline fired his gun, striking the man, according to BCA's preliminary investigation.
Both officers are on administrative leave. The BCA said it is protecting the identity of the man shot during the incident as allowed under statute.
The man was taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul after the shooting and was treated for non-life threatening injuries, the release said. No one else was injured.
According to a July 14 news release from Woodbury Public Safety:
The shooting occurred about 11:30 a.m. in the 7000 block of Highpointe Road. A man called 911 the morning of July 14 and said he was "having homicidal feelings" and that he "wants to die," repeatedly telling dispatchers to "Come kill me."
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.
