Man Wounded By Police Charged With Attempted Murder
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Prosecutors have charged a St. Paul man with second-degree attempted murder for shooting at police who were executing a search warrant at his home.
Thirty-seven-year-old Cory Lee was charged Monday. St. Paul police were executing a warrant at Lee's home Friday when he allegedly fired a shot at police. The officers weren't hurt, but one officer's tactical vest had a hole consistent with a bullet.
Police used a ram to break open Lee's door. The Star Tribune reports Lee fired a shot, but the officer did not have a firearm handy because both of his hands were holding the ram. The other officer fired his AR-15 rifle at Lee, striking him in the arm.
Lee told authorities he had a gun because he was robbed a few weeks ago.
