Tensions rise in Minneapolis after police fatally shoot suspect

Source: The Hill

BY JORDAN WILLIAMS

Tensions emerged in Minneapolis on Thursday evening after police fatally shot a suspect while attempting to serve an arrest warrant.

Members of a U.S. Marshals task force were attempting to apprehend an individual wanted on a state warrant for possession of a firearm by a felon at around 2:10 p.m., according to a statement from the U.S. Marshall Service shared with The Hill by the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office.

During the incident, the subject, who was in a parked car, “failed to comply and produced a handgun resulting in task force members firing upon the subject,” the statement said.

Task force members attempted to perform life-saving measures, but the suspect was pronounced dead that the scene.

1. At least this guy sounded potentially dangerous. Not just a traffic stop.

2. Are US Marshals considered police?

I know they both enforce laws, but when I think of police, I think officers under city control.

3. The Marshals' "task force" includes local law enforcement (police, sheriffs)...

I haven't seen a definitive account on who was actually in this specific "task force".

4. No body cams/dash cams. That will make things worse.

5. Okay

Without any bodycam or squad car footage...we'll have to take the word of those who fired on the man...and we all know that cops always tell the truth!!!

“failed to comply and produced a handgun resulting in task force members firing upon the subject,” what the f**k does this even mean?

Could the cops have given the man confusing instructions and when he tried to comply with one set...they opened fire...killing him!!!

And they had no concern for the life of his passenger, either...too bad they didn't kill her...because now she's a witness!

7. I worked with a US Marshall who was a US Coast Guard reservist. Biggest horse's patoot I've ever

worked with. One day I sat and listened as he (a JO) and a senior enlisted were discussing Michael Brown. It was very distressing that the US Marshall gave no consideration to the words "innocent until proven guilty". He was more than happy to conclude he was guilty based upon the rumors flying around.
He also did other things that should have had him thrown out on his butt. Not just unethical, but considered a theft from the government.
Truly distressing that he is a badge carrying federal law enforcement officer.

6. it all sounds so normal...

all those shots fired, and the guy was in his car. Warrant was because he was a felon and had a gun. No other crime?

A bartender who works nearby said several patrons witnessed the shooting. "There were about one or two police cars on the top of the ramp [and then] about five more," he said. "When [all the cars] got to the top, there was eight to 12 shots. [Officers] grabbed the girl … and put her in handcuffs."

An aerial view of the ramp's top level showed a silver SUV with a shattered back window surrounded by other vehicles near a pop-up tent of the type used to shield a crime scene.

A woman who lives across the street from the parking garage said she heard more than a dozen gunshots, followed by a pause, then more gunshots. She asked that her name not be used out of concerns for her safety.

Correction: Previous versions of this article incorrectly reported that a Hennepin County sheriff’s deputy shot and killed a murder suspect in Uptown. The U.S. Marshals office later said the man had a warrant for weapons possession by a felon and that a member of its task force shot the man.
