    Shots Fired At SWAT Team, Family Says Wrong House
    Reporting

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) ― Police officers on the Minneapolis SWAT Team were shot at and hit by several rounds from a suspect's gun while executing a search warrant at a home early Sunday morning. Two officers were hit by the gunfire, but not hurt.

    The homeowner's family said the police broke into the wrong house.

    At 12:46 a.m. Sunday officers were executing a search warrant on the 1300 block of Logan Avenue North as part of an on-going investigation.

    "I must've heard over 20 or 30 shots, I swear, it was scary," said Ruth Hayes, who woke up to a loud boom and then gunfire next door. Minneapolis SWAT officers were executing a search warrant at the Khang home.

    "It was like 30 SWAT guys out here ... it was crazy it was just like havoc," said Hayes.

    Police said the officers searched the first floor, found no one, and on their way to they second floor they were confronted by a man.

    According to police, the officers identified themselves and the man fired several rounds at them. Two officers were hit, but were not hurt since they were wearing protective vests and helmets.

    Police said several officers returned fire, but no one in the house was injured. However, the homeowner's family said that's not how it happened.

    "He heard footsteps, and he thought it was bad guys, when police come inside, they don't say anything," said Dao Khang, the homeowner's brother.

    Dao Khang said his brother Vang Khang was trying to protect his children and fired a shotgun he used for hunting, when officers fired back eight to 10 rounds.

    "It you look at the holes, I don't really know how my brother survived, he's really lucky," said Dao Khang.

    Neighbors said they did hear police identify themselves, but after they broke down the door. They're surprised police would have any reason to raid the Khang home.

    "Nothing suspicious, they're a normal family. It could happen to us, to me," said neighbor Gene Hayes.

    Vang Khang was taken into custody after the search, but his family said he was released by late morning. His brother said Vang Khang has lived in the United States for 20 years and never had any trouble with the law.

    Vang Khang, his wife and six children are now staying with family nearby.

    Two sources familiar with the case said they're investigating if the officers went to the wrong house. An internal affairs investigation is already underway.

    The involved officers have been placed on administrative leave during the investigation of the shooting, which is standard procedure. The officers involved haven't been identified.

    Someone buy that man a bigger gun to bad he didn't have a M1A or FAL.

    Of course that's how it happened.

    Why is it so god damned difficult to raid the correct house? This shit happens way too often.

    EVEN *IF* the cops identified themselves, it doesn't take much for the bad guys to claim to be cops.

    They probably identified themselves after he fired at them. Once he realized they were cops (or that he was outgunned) he gave up.

    I imagine that's how they apprehended such a dangerous suspect.

    Eh, from the physiological trauma, not the physics.

    You'd have too much adreniline and most likely barely feel it.

    These no knock raids on wrong houses are becoming WAY too fucking frequent. I read a year or two ago about one on the wrong house and the dude was a fucking exSeal or some shit and took out a few of the cops.

    You think the dumb fucks would check the address beforehand.

    They'd most likely go right through it.

    My 7.62x54R Mosin will pierce 1/2" steel like butter.

    rifle (real rifle, not .22lr or 9mm from a long barrel) + soft armor = gnoes!

    Why would you think that? People get holes shot through them with slugs and keep attacking until they're physically unable to.

    even if the vest stops the slugs, you are still going to have your chest cavity/rib cage FUCKED up.

    Unless the Department has a shitty budget SWAT guys probably get inserts for their vests which will assorb the hit a lot better then just a regular soft vest.

    tell you what, you can wear whatever vest that is issued to police, and I'll shoot you in the chest with a slug, then we can see for sure.
