Cops Raid Wrong Home and Get Shot

(Full Story)

MINNEAPOLIS — Two officers who raided the wrong house during an investigation were shot at and returned fire, but no one was injured, a police spokesman said.

Family members said the shooter, the father of six, was frightened by the intruders early Sunday and fired through a closed bedroom door after first firing a warning shot.

‘‘It was some bad information that was received on the front end and it’s unfortunate because we have officers that were hit by gunfire and this truly, truly could have been a much worse situation,’’ said Sgt. Jesse Garcia.

‘‘He thought they were gang members and he was scared,’’ said Vang’s brother, Dao Khang. Dao Khang said Vang fired a warning shot, and then two more shots through his closed bedroom door.
