No charges against Minneapolis officers in black man’s death
Two Minneapolis police officers will not be criminally charged after shooting and killing a black man who was fleeing from the officers. In a body-camera video, the two officers pull up to Blevins when one of the officers shouts, “He’s got a gun!” They chase Blevins for less than a minute, and Blevins yells back, “I didn’t do nothing bro,” ”Please don’t shoot” and “Leave me alone.” Officers shot 14 times and hit Blevins four times. Officer Ryan Kelly said he believed Blevins had a gun on him and was “pretty sure” Blevins fired the weapon at him. The videos showed Blevins was holding a bottle in his hand.
