Carver Co. sheriff officials say deputy, man treated, released following struggle


NORWOOD YOUNG AMERICA, Minnesota — Carver County sheriff's officials say an off-duty deputy and a man injured in a confrontation involving a gun have both been treated at hospitals and released.

Authorities say the off-duty McLeod County deputy just happened to be at a Kwik Trip gas station in Norwood Young America when Carver County deputies were called about an unruly patron about 2:40 a.m. Friday. The deputy and patron got into a struggle and a firearm was discharged.

The male patron fled but was later found a few blocks away. He was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center and has been released.

The off-duty deputy was taken to Ridgeview Medical Center in Waconia where he was treated.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating.
