St. Paul Police Involved in 11 Fatal Shootings Since 2008
ST. PAUL (AP) - St. Paul police officers have been involved in more fatal shootings of suspects than any other department in Minnesota since 2008, according to law enforcement data.
Wednesday's shooting death of a young black man has brought new attention on the use of deadly force by St. Paul police. Eleven of the 61 fatal shootings by officers in Minnesota over the span were in St. Paul.
And eight of those St. Paul shootings involved people of color.
Civil rights leaders have called for outside investigators to examine all of the officer-involved fatalities in the city.
Mayor Chris Coleman says he wants an audit of the Police Civilian Internal Affairs Review Commission, which reviews police actions.
