DULUTH, MN. (KBJR) - DULUTH, MN -- A jury trial has been set for the Duluth Police officer charged with two felonies after an officer-involved shooting in September 2020.

Court documents show officers were responding to a report of possible domestic violence at a downtown apartment building.

The call involved a man named Jared Fyle.

While offices were responding, eventually, body camera video of the incident shows officer Tyler Leibfried shooting through a closed door, hitting Jared Fyle on the other side in the shoulder.

Fyle was hospitalized and later released.

He was never charged and the domestic violence call officers were originally responding to was never found.

Leibfried pleaded not guilty to the charged in March.

Monday, a judge scheduled his jury trial to begin January 18, 2022.
