One person was injured in an officer-involved shooting Monday in Moose Lake, according to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.

Law enforcement officials were serving felony warrants at a home in the Hillside Terraces Mobile Home Park. The warrants were in connection to an open investigation into a recent incident allegedly involving the subject, the BCA said.

Law enforcement deployed a flashbang and made entry into the home. At one point, one member of the law enforcement team discharged their firearm, striking the subject. Law enforcement and paramedics provided medical aid at the scene.

The subject was taken to Mercy Hospital in Moose Lake and was airlifted to Essentia Health – St. Mary's Medical Center in Duluth.

No one else was injured during the incident.

BCA investigators will now determine whether any video of the incident was captured.

The Moose Lake and Cloquet Police Departments, Carlton and Pine County Sheriff's Offices, the U.S. Marshals Service, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and Cloquet Fire District Paramedics provided assistance at the scene.

When the investigation is complete, the BCA will turn its findings over without recommendation to the Carlton County Attorney's Office for review.
