Malone got out of the vehicle and fired gunshots at police. An Oakdale officer, identified by the BCA as Andrew Dickman, returned fire. 

Malone, who was not hit by Officer Dickman’s gunfire, got into the house and fired additional rounds at police, the news release says. Malone was arrested after a short standoff.

Officer Dickman, who has three years of law enforcement experience, has been placed on standard administrative leave, the BCA says. State investigators are reviewing footage of the incident captured by officer-worn body cameras and squad car dash cameras. 

The news release says footage captured from Dickman’s body-worn camera is part of the review. 

The BCA is continuing to investigate the shooting and will present the investigation’s findings without a charging recommendation to the Washington County Attorney’s Office upon completion of the investigation, the news release says.
