Ramsey County deputy is fired on while moonlighting at nightclub

Six to 10 gunshots were fired at a Ramsey County sheriff's deputy early today when he was working off duty at a nightclub.

The deputy wasn't injured in the shooting between 1:30 and 1:45 a.m., near Rice Street and Larpenteur Avenue on the St. Paul-Maplewood border.

Deputy Don Rindal was on the Maplewood side and the shooter was on the St. Paul side, said Ramsey County Undersheriff Nicholas O'Hara.

Sheriff's deputies were working off duty at Club Cristal, providing security. Several young men had been removed from the club when they became disorderly, O'Hara said.

The men were seen in the parking lot and Rindal, patrolling the lot, pulled up in an unmarked squad car and activated the emergency lights, O'Hara said. He identified himself as a sheriff's deputy and told the men they needed to leave the property.

Rindal, a sheriff's deputy since 1999, was wearing a ballistics vest with fluorescent green lettering to indicate he worked for the sheriff's office, O'Hara said.

"They knew who he was," O'Hara said.

The men walked across Larpenteur Avenue and south on Camelot Street. Rindal, driving back into the parking lot from Rice Street, saw one of the men raise his right hand and point it in his direction, O'Hara said.

Rindal then saw a muzzle flash and heard six to 10 shots; he could hear rounds hitting a stop sign on Larpenteur Avenue, O'Hara said.

Rindal called for backup and St. Paul police set up a perimeter in the area, O'Hara said.

Five people were arrested, some who had gone to an apartment on California Avenue.
A gun was found abandoned nearby, O'Hara said.

They should send code enforcement over to the club and give them a code compliance.It knocked many landlords out of the game so we know it works.

Code enforcement and any government office think they are gods and the tax payers are the pee-on's in life.
Wake up people.
We have the enforcement officers assisting code cop's and
we have undercover police on duty so dunk and caring guns, with level's of 2.2 should be taken to "DeTox".
There are people like a city council person that his house was a wreck and the code cop's let him slide, but a landlord gets sited for minor stuff.
Let all look hard at how long the Democrats have been the boss in St.Paul.
St.Paul has been a haven for crooks science the 1930's. John Dillinger, Al Capone, then the mayors and the city council, police chiefs, city inspector's till now.
DROPPING THE DIME ON ON LANDLORDS BY ST.PAUL GOVERNMENT, they pay fine's on these code violations and then they condemn these properties.
Not all landlords are carpenter's, brick layers, electricians, plumbers, so the city will make sure they hire union workers.
The union money can be donated in large amounts to the politicians on the Democratic Party, without any limits.
What does Democrat stand for, democratic, framer, labor, DFL
Do you ever see unions donate to the Republican candidates, No.
This city and their friends get by do to union kick back for some overlooked details on construction site's, or favors on contracts.

and without unions you wouldn't have any standards for those plumbers, electricians, bricklayers and such. Having the standard of quality and training brings in a wage they live on.

Unions created the middle class, afterall everyone is not as well educated as you are.

With unions, we have corruption.
So what are you saying, its ok to have a two sided swords and two sided people
Education just make lawyers, judges and politicians better liars.
Unions created people like Hoffa, and corrupt ties with the courts.
Where are the honest city employees, not in code compliance or city council.
Do you feel our mayor is honest?
We need crooks, so the police federation is backed by the highly organized unions
We all have our own opinions.

"and without unions you wouldn't have any standards for those plumbers, electricians, bricklayers and such."


I can't speak to plumbing or bricklaying, but the standards for the use of electric power are covered by the National Electric Code, which was written and is overseen by professional engineers.

Without engineering professionals, electrics tradesmen would still be testing electrical outlets with their fingers.

In the 21st century, a trade labor union's job is to protect the lowest common denominator, keep the political left afloat financially and to provide the union bosses with new SUV's every year.

Swiftee 9:54 AM Unions are good in some ways, but when the Democratic Party supports abortions, if your mother had a abortion with you it would not been so nice.
What if Chuck Repke was aborted, or some other Democrats that voted for parcel birth abortion.
That all for now, let stand up and vote for baby killers DFL.
"Gee" Good work Satan's people.
Hay Swiftee who's side are you on, St.Paul or for the people and taxpayers?
