Hmong man thought intruders were gang members, brother says

MINNEAPOLIS - Two police officers who raided the wrong house during an investigation were shot at and returned fire, but no one was injured, a police spokesman said.

A language barrier may have created the misunderstanding, even though the officers identified themselves as police, Sgt. Jesse Garcia said.

Family members said the shooter, the father of six, was frightened by the intruders bursting through the back door early Sunday and fired through a closed bedroom door after first firing a warning shot.
