Minneapolis police shoot, kill man during traffic stop; chief to release video

Minneapolis police shoot, kill man during traffic stop; chief to release video

The video showed the man attempting to drive away from police before his vehicle was hemmed in, and then showed him looking through his driver's side window at the officers. Police Chief Medaria Arradondo says that initial witness statements indicate the suspect fired at the officers first, at which point the officers returned fire. He said the officers' body cameras were turned on and promised to release the video on Thursday.

A group of anti-cop protesters attacked Minneapolis police officers following an officer-involved shooting Wednesday night.

Wednesday's shooting spurred protests, raising concerns about possible destructive behavior similar to riots that erupted after Floyd's death.

"I want our communities to see that so they can see for themselves", he said.

"I want the community to be able to see what occurred, and I think that that is part of, again, us moving forward and wanting to make sure that we get the facts out there", he said.

Elder said the man was pronounced dead at the scene by medical personnel. "An adult female who was a passenger in this subject vehicle was unharmed as well", Mr Arradondo said. He declined to say whether police recovered a gun at the site of the shooting. At a news conference, Arradondo was asked whether officers used reasonable force, and he said they reacted to a deadly threat.

Protesters gathered Wednesday night after an officer-involved shooting earlier in the evening.

Arradondo says bodycam footage showing the incident will be released on Thursday. "Our city has gone through too much", Arradondo said.

It comes amid an increase in violent crime in the Midwestern city, which was convulsed by protests following Floyd's death.

In Minneapolis, Floyd's death also led to a push for radical change in the police department, long criticised by activists for what they called a brutal culture that resisted change. A push by some City Council members to replace the department with a new public safety unit failed this summer. The Star Tribune reported that charges in the case said Idd fired a gun in the basement shower of his parents' home in suburban Eden Prairie with two children sleeping nearby.

Frey called the shooting "a tragic and hard day capping what has been a tragic and hard year". "We know a life has been cut short and that trust between communities of colour and law enforcement is fragile. we must all be committed to getting the facts, pursuing justice, and keeping the peace". Three officers who were also present when Floyd died in May - J. Alexander Kueng, Tou Thao and Thomas Lane - are charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and manslaughter. They are scheduled for trial in March.
