Police: Man armed with handgun

killed by St. Paul officers

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter says he’ll work with investigators to release police body camera video “as soon as possible” following a fatal officer-involved shooting.

Police say officers shot an armed man while responding to a 911 call early Sunday about shots fired at a home.

Police say officers were dispatched around 2:30 a.m. after a male 911 caller reported that someone had fired multiple shots inside a residence. The caller then hung up.

Police say responding officers encountered a man with a handgun, and two officers later discharged their weapons.

No details about the man or officers have been released. The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating.

Last week in neighboring Minneapolis, a local prosecutor said two officers were justified when they fatally shot a man who’d turned toward them with a loaded gun.
