FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A car theft suspect shot by a Fargo police officer is expected to survive.

Cody Redshirt tells KFGO radio (https://bit.ly/1JCKP2J ) that his 31-year-old brother Karmen Redshirt has serious injuries but is expected to live.

Officer Patrick Thomas shot Karmen Redshirt three times Monday after authorities say the suspect aimed a replica pellet gun with a laser pointer at him. The incident happened after a chase with law officers who say Redshirt was driving a stolen car.

Redshirt, of Bismarck, remains in the hospital. He faces four felony charges including terrorizing and theft of property and could face more than 20 years in prison if convicted. Court documents do not list an attorney for him.
