ST. PAUL -- A routine traffic stop midday Wednesday ended with gunshots that felled Mendota Heights’ most veteran police officer. Eight hours later, during a massive manhunt for officer Scott Patrick’s killer, police said the suspect opened fire on St. Paul officers, who shot back.

Brian George Fitch Sr. was injured, as was a woman in the car he was driving.
