ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Police say they are searching for no other suspects in the fatal shooting of a Minnesota police officer.
Brian George Fitch Sr. was captured Wednesday night after a manhunt. Police say Fitch was shot and seriously wounded during a shootout with authorities. He was wanted following the fatal shooting of Mendota Heights officer Scott Patrick during a traffic stop in West St. Paul.
Police say they expect the Dakota County attorney to charge Fitch Friday in Patrick's death. They also say they still don't know what led to the traffic stop, and say they may never know.
The Associated Press found court records showing Fitch was wanted because he had left a drug treatment program and faced up to 30 years in prison if convicted on a pending drug charge.
