Washington County deputy 'had no choice' in Lake Elmo man's shooting death, attorney says


Benjamin Evans

The defense attorney for a Washington County sheriff's deputy who pleaded not guilty Wednesday to second-degree manslaughter in the shooting of a Lake Elmo man said his client "had no choice" but to use deadly force.

Brian J. Krook, 31, who lives in Somerset Township, Wis., is charged with being culpably negligent and creating unreasonable risk shortly after midnight on April 12, 2018, when he shot 23-year-old Benjamin W. Evans at an intersection near Evans' home. Deputies were there responding to a 911 call of a suicidal man with a gun.
