FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Two Fargo police officers will be placed on administrative leave following the shooting of a robbery suspect who police say fired first.

Police Chief Dave Todd tells KFGO-AM (https://bit.ly/1ImCpln ) a man with a gun approached the desk of the Howard Johnson Inn on Thursday afternoon and demanded money.

Todd says the man fired one round from a handgun in the hotel before he was given money.

As he fled, two officers saw the suspect near a gas station. Todd says as they approached him, the suspect fired several rounds. He says the officers exchanged fire and that it appears the suspect was hit by one round.

Neither officer was injured.

The man was taken to nearby Sanford Medical Center. Todd says he doesn’t know the man’s condition.
