FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Police have identified the officer who shot at a suspect this week in Fargo.

Authorities say Officer Cory Luckow was investigating a possible bike theft Wednesday when he made contact with 32-year-old Richard Torres, of Moorhead. Torres fled on foot and Luckow pursued him.

Police say Torres pointed a handgun at Luckow during the pursuit, causing the officer to fire his gun toward the suspect. Luckow has been a Fargo officer for two years and is on standard administrative leave.

Torres was taken to the Cass County Jail. It's not clear if he has an attorney.
