A Minneapolis man has been charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm in connection with a drive-by shooting of a team of Minnesota National Guard soldiers and a local police officer over the weekend, according to a criminal complaint and a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office District of Minnesota.

Officials say Andrew Thomas, 28, was spotted by law enforcement late Sunday night driving a light-colored Ford Explorer that matched the description of a vehicle from which multiple shots were fired at law enforcement early Sunday morning in Minneapolis.
The shooting took place at about 4:20 a.m. when multiple shots were fired from a light-colored SUV at the team, the criminal complaint said. One bullet went through the windshield of a team vehicle that held four soldiers.
