Norman County deputy justified in shooting at suspect, review says

Email

ADA - A Norman County deputy shot during a traffic stop last month was justified in firing at the suspect, according to the Minnesota county attorney reviewing the case.

Norman County Deputy Nathan Warner returned fire after being shot April 15 near Perley in northwest Minnesota.

Warner was shot in the back in his bullet-resistant vest, and another round struck his portable radio on the front of his vest. Warner returned fire but missed, the criminal complaint said.
