Deputies involved in shooting near Dover return to work

DOVER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Two deputies involved in a shooting near Dover one week ago have returned to work after being placed on administrative leave.

Olmsted County Sgt. Mike Morrow and Deputy Hiram Jobes were trying to negotiate with Joshua Pagel, 27, after a domestic assault where he allegedly beat-up his grandmother.

Morrow and Jobes had found Pagel hiding under a camper in Dover. During negotiations, Pagel came out from under the camper and charged at the deputies. That's when Morrow fired two non-lethal rounds at the suspect.

Pagel had to be airlifted to Saint Marys Hospital in Rochester, but is said to be recovering.

Pagel is charged with felony domestic assault. The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is still investigating.
