Wanted New Ulm Man In Custody 17 Jan 14

A wanted man from New Ulm is now in custody after gunfire broke out in northeast Minneapolis Wednesday. Police and federal agents were serving a warrant on 48-year-old Buck Otto White, formerly known as Timothy Joseph Hofmann, when shots were fired following a pursuit that ended with a crash. It is still unclear who fired the shots, but White was taken to the Hennepin County Medical Center for treatment after being taken into custody. He had been wanted since July on federal gun charges. He was indicted in March for being a career criminal in possession of a firearm after several guns were found in a Courtland storage locker last February. Some guns linked to White were also found by Nicollet County sheriff’s deputies investigating a string of burglaries in St. Peter, and more were found when a house in Jordan was searched.
