INVESTIGATORS IDENTIFY POLICE OFFICER INJURED IN SHOOTOUT AT WOODBURY RESIDENCE

Posted in State of Minnesota

ST. PAUL - The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) today identified the Woodbury Police Department officer involved in a shooting outside a Woodbury home earlier this week.



Sergeant Omar Maklad, 27, was treated and released at Regions Hospital in St. Paul for serious but non-life threatening injuries. BCA agents interviewed Maklad this afternoon as part of their investigation.



Maklad was responding to a domestic disturbance call late Thursday night at 7200 Braemer Lane involving a male pushing his wife. As Maklad exited his squad and approached the residence, he was fired upon by the homeowner, 55-year-old Timothy Scott Hanson, from outside the home. Maklad and Hanson then exchanged gunfire, during which Maklad was struck twice and Hanson was fatally wounded.



Maklad has been an employee of the Woodbury Police Department since 2001. He spent two years working as a Community Service Officer before being hired as a full-time police officer. He is also a member of the Washington County Special Response Team.



The BCA is leading the investigation with the assistance of the Washington County Sheriff's Office.
