HIBBING, MN -

We're learning about updated charges in a Hibbing officer-involved shooting.

In addition to an attempted second degree murder charge, and seven assault charges, Che Jones, of Rochester, also faces fifth degree drug charges, and two charges related to illegal possession of a firearm. 

According to the criminal complaint, further investigation revealed the gun was stolen.

Police responded to a 911 call back in January, reporting a person with a gun on the 2900 block of 3rd Avenue East, in Hibbing. 

When officers arrived, they found Jones outside holding a gun. Police say Jones refused to drop the weapon, even pointing his gun at police officers.

That's when the officers fired their weapons, hitting Jones.
