Family members have identified the man shot and killed by St. Paul police Monday night in the city's Dayton's Bluff neighborhood.
Howard Johnson, 24, was identified by his aunt, Tonya Medvec. Medvec and another aunt arrived Tuesday morning with candles and balloons to commemorate Johnson as police tape still clung to the wall of a nearby building and blood was still caked on the pavement.
Johnson displayed a gun as police moved in to make an arrest and was fatally shot by officers, police said. The Ramsey County medical examiner has yet to formally identify Johnson.
