Security guard Young Matthew Vang told police he was attacked by a gunman who was wearing a ski mask. Police say a preliminary investigation indicates Vang was acting in self-defense. Vang suffered minor injuries.

Authorities say both Vang and Wiley worked for Mill City Protective Agency. Wiley was not on duty at the time of the shooting.

Eagan police spokesperson Aaron Machtemes said no surveillance video exists of the shooting.

"Our entire investigative team is working on the investigation, pursuing every lead that they can to make a clear picture of what happened that night," Machtemes said.

An attorney for Mill City Protective Agency Bill Erhart said that due to the shooting's circumstances, they will defer to police.

"We've been cooperating as much as we can. It's tough situation for the company," Erhart said.
