GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - The University of North Dakota Police Department has released the name of the officer who shot a man in the parking lot of Altru Hospital following a lengthy police chase.

WDAY-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1B7tZZa ) that the department says Jared Braaten shot 41-year-old David Elliott early Saturday morning. He has been with the department since October 2013.

Police say Elliott fled officers Friday night and early Saturday morning and eventually drove his pickup truck to the parking lot of the hospital. It’s still unclear what led to the shooting.

Elliott is being treated at Altru and has not yet been charged with a crime. The Grand Forks Police Department says any criminal charges will be pursued by the county state’s attorney’s office.

Braaten is still on administrative leave as per department policy.
