Brian Fitch Sr., the suspect in the West St. Paul shooting death of a Mendota Heights police officer, is in "serious condition" at Regions Hospital in St. Paul, officials said Thursday.
Police say they are seeking no suspects beyond Fitch in connection with the killing of Officer Scott Patrick, who was shot Wednesday afternoon during what police described as a routine traffic stop.
Fitch, 39, was captured Wednesday night in St. Paul's North End after an eight-hour manhunt ended in a gun battle that wounded him near Rice and Sycamore streets.
The 36-year-old woman struck by gunfire during Fitch's arrest, Kelly Lee Hardy of Maplewood, is in fair condition, St. Paul police said Thursday.
