SAUK CENTRE, Minn. - The names of the officers and suspect involved in a standoff and shooting on Thursday afternoon in Sauk Centre have been released.
The standoff began after the suspect, Ramsey James Olson, 31, of Alexandria, shot Officer Paul Orvis with an arrow in the forearm.
Stearns County Sheriff's officials confirmed that Orvis suffered the non-life threatening injury while responding to a report of a pickup truck crashing into a building in Sauk Centre just after 11 a.m.
According to the new report, Sgt. Joseph Jensen discarded his taser and Trooper Anthony Butler and Officer Patrick Nechanicky fired multiple shots, striking Olson, after Orvis was struck by the arrow in the forearm.
Don Gudmundson of the Minnesota State Patrol said it's unclear at this point, who shot Olson. He said there were multiple crews from different agencies on scene.
Olson was shot in the left shoulder, buttocks and had a grazing wound to the hand, Gudmundson said.
He said the incident began around 10 a.m. Thursday, after a stolen black pickup truck left Osakis, Minn. and headed into Sauk Centre. Olson pulled into a parking lot before running into a building, then fleeing through multiple backyards and smashing into multiple parked cars.
The vehicle Olson was driving finally smashed into a garage on the 700 block of 10th Street where it came to rest. Gudmundson said Olson then ran into the home, where he barricaded himself inside.
A perimeter was set up and residents evacuated as negotiators attempted to talk the man into surrendering. Gudmundson said that's when Olson appeared in the second story window with a compound bow and shot Orvis in the arm.
Gudmundson said the compound bow belonged to the Olson.
Olson was eventually taken into custody around 1 p.m. after being tasered and shot by officers. He was taken to a local hospital and later airlifted to the St. Cloud Hospital for further treatment of his wounds.
Orvis was taken to a local hospital for treatment. He is currently in surgery to remove the arrow shaft.
Orvis is a 17-year veteran of the Stearns County Sheriff's Office.
