On the afternoon of Wednesday, August 26th, 2020 residents of Minneapolis were angry and upset regarding what was thought to have been another black man being murdered by police. But after further investigation and video surveillance, it is now said that a black man in downtown Minneapolis, MN at Ramp A, located in the area of 10th Street North and Currie Avenue committed suicide. The man was allegedly a suspect from a crime scene that just so happened nearby. There were three people involved in a dispute which turned into an altercation. One man fired a gun at another man and shot him. The shooter along with a woman ran from the scene. After officers arrived on the scene and were able to make out the description of the suspects, police say a black man pulled a gun on himself and committed suicide. The other suspect, the woman, was later apprehended and taken into custody.
Although witnesses claimed that officers jumped out of their vehicle and shot the man for no reason, other video footage shows a very different story. Please feel free to check out the attached video footage which appears as if the police didn't shoot the man, but that the man did in fact commit suicide.
