Minneapolis chief calls fatal shooting of man by police Wednesday night 'justifiable and lawful'

Minneapolis Police Chief Brian O'Hara said Thursday that he believes the fatal shooting of a man by officers the night before in south Minneapolis was "justifiable and lawful" because the suspect was armed and threatening people.

The identity of the man had not been released as of Thursday evening. The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) said it was investigating what it classified as a "use-of-force incident."

The agency said it will have more to say once its preliminary investigation is complete.
