Fundraiser Set Up For Roseville Officer Who Was Shot
Roseville, MN (KROC AM News) - A GoFundMe site has been set up that is connected to the Roseville police officer who was shot in the face Tuesday night by a man who was firing a gun in a residential neighborhood.
Ryan Duxbury has been with the Roseville Police Department for three years. He remains in stable condition.
The gunman who shot him later died from a gunshot wound to the stomach. The two officers who fired at him have been placed on administrative leave while the shooting is investigated by the Minnesota BCA.
The Roseville PD says the gunman fired 100 or more rounds at officers and nearby homes before he was shot. The BCA says portions of the incident were captured on body cameras and squad cameras. BCA crime scene personnel recovered a .22 caliber scoped lever-action rifle from near where the gunman was shot.
The man was identified as 53-year-old Jesse Werling of Roseville, who had a history of mental illness-related incidents.
