Houston County Sheriff's Office involved in chase, shooting

La Crescent Police officers saw two men behaving suspiciously at the 3rd Street Kwik Trip around 1:30 AM. They were pursued by the officers until they crashed into a bean field near Caledonia, MN.

The men fled in their auto, with the officers in pursuit.

That suspect was booked into the La Crosse County (Wisconsin) jail on probable cause of attempted murder.

Two people are in custody following an officer related shooting in Houston County on Tuesday.

Officers pulled their vehicle over at Minnesota Highway 44 and Minnesota Highway 16 after they left the convenience store and encountered gunfire, according to the BCA. He was then taken to the La Crosse County Jail to await extradition back to Minnesota on a charge of probable cause attempted murder. The men exited the auto and ran into a field but eventually surrendered to authorities.

The highway would likely be closed "a good portion of the day" as the BCA processes the scene, the Houston County Sheriff's Office said.
