Bismarck Police have confirmed that a Bismarck officer discharged a weapon during an early morning incident.

The incident stemmed from a stolen vehicle report out of Mandan at 2:37am. An officer soon located the vehicle on South 3rd Street in Bismarck. After the driver ignored verbal commands and drove the vehicle towards the officer, the officer discharged his weapon into the vehicle.

The vehicle then fled, but was later stopped by Emmons County law enforcement. The suspect had two gunshot wounds when located and was taken to a Bismarck hospital for treatment.

The North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation will be investigating the incident. In compliance with department policy, the officer has been placed on administrative leave pending investigation.
