Law enforcement from various local agencies saluted officer Jacob Spies upon discharge in August from North Memorial Health Hospital in Robbinsdale aftre he was shot.

The Minneapolis Police Department said Wednesday that officers have arrested a 16-year-old male who was wanted in connection to a recent, nonfatal shooting of an officer on duty.

In August, officer Jacob Spies was wounded by automatic gunfire while using an unmarked car to pursue a robbery suspect. Spies, a seven-year veteran of the department, was treated and discharged the same night. Two people have already been charged in federal court for their alleged involvement in Spies' shooting.

Minneapolis officers and colleagues from other agencies were out Tuesday on what the department called a "focused enforcement detail designed to disrupt criminal activity and impact the occurrences of gun-related crimes and illegal narcotics activity" in an MPD news release.
