MINOT, N.D. (AP) — Minot police say a shoplifting suspect who reportedly pulled a gun on an officer is in custody.

Police say the 23-year-old Minot man was taken into custody late Sunday afternoon.

Police were called Saturday afternoon to a store in the Dakota Square Mall about a shoplifter in custody. When the officer arrived, police say the suspect brandished a handgun and ran out the store.

Witnesses saw a man matching the suspect’s description flee from the main doors near the mall’s food court.
