FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Authorities say a Fargo police officer shot and killed a man after authorities responded to a call about two people slumped over in a van that turned out to be stolen.
Police say the 28-year-old Jamestown man was shot after driving the van out of a garage at an apartment complex. He died at a hospital several hours after the shooting.
The officer, an 11-year veteran of the force, has been placed on paid administrative leave while the case is being reviewed by the state Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
Another man was arrested at the scene after he ignored commands of officers and was found to have methamphetamine.
A third person who was in the van fled the area and remains at large.
