The Bureau of Criminal Affairs has released additional information about what led up to an officer-involved shooting on the Iron Range.
Late Friday, the BCA identified those involved in the December 22 incident in Gilbert as St. Louis County Sheriff's Deputy Derrick Deutsch and Gilbert Police Officer Joseph Bradach.
The BCA's preliminary investigation says Deutsch and Bradach were looking for an individual wanted on a warrant at a residence in Gilbert where a gun was located.
While officer Bradach was making contact with the two individuals, a man identified as 40-year old John Golnick of Chaska began to flee the residence on foot.
According to the release, officials say at one point, Golnick fired his gun striking Deputy Deutsch. Then, Deputy Deutsch and Officer Bradach returned fire, striking Golnick, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to the release, the BCA recovered a handgun at the scene.
Deputy Deautsh was treated for a gunshot wound to the hand and released the same day.
The victim was not the individual wanted on the warrant.
