A suspect is holed up in a home in Sauk Centre after shooting a crossbow at a deputy, hitting him in the forearm, and the officer then returned fire. Stearns County Sheriff Don Gudmundson says, “We have evacuated all of those people in the neighborhood. SWAT teams are on the way as well as negotiators.” Multiple law enforcement agencies are at the scene. The sheriff says it began with the suspect driving erratically and running into a building. The officer hit by the arrow was taken to the hospital. We’ll have more information as it becomes available.
