Suspect dead, Oakdale officer shot after morning raid


An Oakdale man is dead and a police officer hospitalized with a gunshot wound to the arm after authorities attempted to serve a search warrant in a quiet neighborhood Thursday morning.

The shooting occurred about 8 a.m. when Oakdale police and a Bureau of Criminal Apprehension agent attempted to search the split-level home on the 2700 block of Granite Avenue. When entering the home, police encountered a man and “a weapon or weapons were used,” according to the St. Paul Police Department, which is assisting with the case. The Oakdale officer was shot and the suspect was injured, although authorities did not specify the nature of his injuries. Both were taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul, where the suspect was pronounced dead. Oakdale police declined to immediately identify the officer.
