BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A 49-year-old man shot by Bismarck police Monday night also was shot by police in 2011.

Authorities say both incidents were similar, with Glenn Lovgren confronting officers after calling 911 and reporting that he held hostages.

Lovgren spent more than two weeks in the hospital after the January 2011 incident and eventually was sentenced to seven years in prison.

Police said he was in surgery Tuesday morning, after being shot multiple times late Monday at a softball field.

Authorities allege Lovgren appeared to point a gun at one officer and did not follow commands. Three other officers on scene fired at him. The Bismarck Tribune reports Lovgren didn’t actually have a gun.

The three officers have been placed on administrative leave while the state crime bureau investigates, per normal procedure.
