State Agency Identifies Man Shot By Police
ST. PAUL (AP) -- The state agency investigating a fatal shooting by St. Paul police has identified the man who died and the officers who shot him.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said Tuesday that 43-year-old William James Hughes died of multiple gunshot wounds early Sunday after officers responded to a 911 call of gunfire in an apartment building.
The agency says its preliminary investigation shows Officers Matthew Jones and Vincent Adams entered an enclosed porch and knocked on an apartment door. Hughes emerged from another door and officers shot him. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Authorities say a gun has been recovered.
When the BCA completes its investigation, it will turn over a report to the Ramsey County Attorney for review on whether charges are warranted.
