Fugitive Killed Atop Uptown Minneapolis Parking Ramp By Task Force Members, Says US Marshals"MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The U.S. Marshals Service says members of a federal task force fatally shot a fugitive atop a parking ramp in Minneapolis’s Uptown neighborhood Thursday afternoon.
The deadly encounter happened at about 2:10 p.m. at a parking ramp off Lake Street between Fremont and Hennepin avenues. Marshals Service officials say the victim was wanted “on a state arrest warrant” for being a felon in possession of a firearm. Task force members, in several vehicles, confronted the man in the ramp, who was sitting with a woman in a parked car. The man wouldn’t surrender and pulled out a gun, officials say, resulting in multiple task force members opening fire."
"Stella’s, along with other nearby businesses like Target and Life Time, closed early for the day. A crowd gathered at the scene, waiting to get more information about the shooting. Two peace activist groups — We Push For Peace and A Mother’s Love — were also present to deescalate conflicts if they were to arise.
Most members of the crowd had dispersed by about 6 p.m., but a crowd returned just after 9:15 p.m., soon after investigators left the scene and reopened Lake Street to traffic. People pulled down crime scene tape, and then dragged a dumpster into the middle of the busy thoroughfare and set it on fire."
Law enforcement kills man in Minneapolis' Uptown neighborhood"The shooting occurred atop a parking ramp at W. Lake Street and S. Fremont Avenue. The Marshals Service said many agencies were involved in the original operation, including officers from the Hennepin, Anoka and Ramsey County sheriff's offices and the federal Department of Homeland Security. Minneapolis police played no role.
The warrant for the man's arrest was issued in Minnesota, said Marshals Service spokeswoman Nikki Credic-Barrett. It was not clear if the warrant had any relation to a law enforcement scanner report that the man was a suspect in a murder, possibly in another state."
"Many of those gathered outside the police tape near Lake Street and S. Girard Avenue came simply to watch investigators from the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives work. But some chanted insults at Minneapolis police, whose officers were providing perimeter support
Members of the citizen crime prevention group We Push for Peace mingled with onlookers and those taunting law enforcement, advocating for patience and peace. Others, from the crime-prevention group A Mother's Love, also circulated in the crowd.
Many who were chanting anti-police slogans knew little except that officers had killed a man, said Pharoah Merritt of We Push for Peace. "We understand the anger and ire when we see these police shootings," he said. "We don't know anything."
The cynic in me *wonders* . . . the Twin Cities, led in part by churches, is resisting *the agenda*
satan has been busy busy busy, but God is greater greater greater
Please pray for peace.
