Suspect in Minnesota officer killing in custody

WEST ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- A man wanted in the shooting death of a Mendota Heights Police Officer is in custody after being shot by police.

St. Paul police spokesman Sgt. Paul Paulos says 39-year-old Brian Fitch Senior got out of a minivan firing at officers Wednesday evening. Police returned fire, striking Fitch and a woman who was with him.

Paulos says Fitch's condition is unknown. The woman suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

A daylong manhunt was underway for Fitch in the killing of Mendota Heights police officer Scott Patrick. Patrick was fatally shot while making a traffic stop in West St. Paul. He was the first Mendota Height's police officer to be slain in the line of duty.
