ST. PAUL, Minn. - St. Paul police have identified the two officers that responded to a domestic situation that led to an officer-involved shooting on Tuesday morning.
When Joseph Higgins, a 7-year veteran of the department, and Ramar Davis, a 5-year veteran of the department, arrived at the home in the 200 block of Aurora Avenue around 4 a.m., they learned a 47-year-old man suspected of being involved in the domestic disturbance had fled the scene.
Kevin Lloyd Carroll was located near the intersection of Galtier Street and Fuller Avenue by an SUV.
After officers issued several verbal warnings to show his hands and get down on the ground, the suspect's actions led to the shooting. In a news release by St. Paul police, the officer said he "feared for his life."
The suspect was taken to Regions Hospital where was being treated for what police say are non-life-threatening injuries.
Higgins and Davis were placed on a three-day administrative leave per department policy.
