Minneapolis Shootout

Shooting at the police is generally not recommended, but Minneapolis criminals aren't too bright. KSTP Eyewitness News reports a shootout following a disturbance call in Minneapolis: "Shootout involving police on city's north side".

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Two Minneapolis police officers are unhurt after an early morning shooting Sunday on the city's north side.

Officers were responding to a disturbance call on Newton Avenue North when they were confronted by a group of people in front of the home.

Police say someone fired a gun at the two officers, and one of the officers returned fire. The officers were not injured.

Several guns were recovered, and witnesses were taken to police headquarters for interviews. One man was arrested and booked on an unrelated warrant.
Thankfully no officers were hurt and some bad men were taken off the streets. Now we can only hope some softie judge doesn't kick them back to the streets in short order.
