Authorities in (the state of) Minnesota say they have arrested an ethnic Hmong police officer in connection with a series of shootings that have shaken the Southeast Asian community in the city of Saint Paul. Local police say Tou Cha was taken into custody this week on suspicion of assault. He is suspected of shooting out several windows last November at a mall that houses a Lao veterans group. He is also being investigated in connection with last month's shooting at the home of an influential Hmong leader's translator. No one was injured in the shootings. Authorities say they do not have a motive for the shootings.
