Near miss: Residential shooting barely avoided

Email

A patrol officer was pulling his trigger when the crouching, male suspect allegedly pointing a semi-automatic handgun at him finally threw it to the ground and surrendered. This was late Sunday night in the 600 block of Sunset Lane. A 27-year-old man who lives there was later charged with two felonies and drunk driving.

River Falls police responded to the address after a complaint that a moped driver had run a stop sign and almost caused a crash.
