Deputy, suspect exchange gunfire in Benton County

August 1, 2014

MINDEN TOWNSHIP, Minn. (AP) — Authorities in Benton County say a man has been arrested after exchanging gunfire with a sheriff's deputy.

Chief Deputy Troy Heck says the incident began at about 6:00 p.m. Thursday when dispatchers received a call from a man who said he was "going to a storage facility and shoot some rounds off with his gun, just for fun".

A Benton County deputy then found a man sitting in a chair with a gun at Airway Storage in Minden Township just east of St. Cloud.

Heck tells WJON (http://bit.ly/1nRrl4G ) as the deputy approached the man raised his gun and fired. The deputy returned and the man took off in his vehicle. The man was later found in a wooded area shortly before 9 p.m. and arrested.

The deputy and the suspect were not hit by gunfire.
