Brother Identifies Man Killed in St. Paul Police Shooting
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- The man who was killed in an officer-involved shooting
in St. Paul has been identified by his brother.
The man was identified as Cordale Handy of St. Paul. That's according to his brother, JaJuan Handy.
Authorities say officers were called to an apartment building early Wednesday
because of a domestic situation involving violence. Police say officers
encountered a man on the street. Shots were fired and he was struck.
De'Andre Gatewood heard the incident. He says a woman screamed: ``He's trying
to kill me.'' While officers were there, he says the woman shouted that the gun
wasn't loaded and she told the man to put it down.
The St. Paul chapter of the NAACP and other community groups didn't identify
Handy by name, but say he was black.
