419

Minneapolis Police released body camera footage showing the fatal shooting of a man 23-year-old Dolal Bayle Idd in south Minneapolis.

The shooting happened at about 6:15 p.m. Wednesday at a Holiday gas station near East 36th Street and Cedar Avenue. Police said officers were engaged in a traffic stop with a felony suspect when gunfire was exchanged and the suspect was struck. While police have not yet identified the man, who died at the scene.

The body camera video shows officers that were part of a Community Response Team — a unit that often deals with higher risk crimes and situations — with guns drawn aimed at a white car and officers are heard yelling for the people in the vehicle to put their hands up. After the car backs up and then drives forward into two Minneapolis Police squad vehicles, officers are heard shouting more commands for the occupants to put their hands up, and then a single gunshot is heard and a hole is seen in the front driver’s side window of the white car. After another second, several gunshots are fired into the driver’s side of the car, and the driver’s door window is seeking breaking. About a dozen shots can be heard before the 27-second video stops.

Police said no officers were injured in the incident.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is currently investigating.

Only one officer’s body camera footage was released. The city’s website says, “While the investigation and any subsequent prosecution or appeal are active, other footage is not available to the public and it will not be posted [online].”
