Crookston officer who killed man in homeless shelter ID'd as same officer who killed man in May

CROOKSTON, Minn. – The Crookston police officer who shot and killed a man at a homeless shelter last week also fatally shot a man six weeks earlier, according to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.

Nick Gunner Fladland, 31, was identified by the BCA as the officer who used deadly force June 30 against Christopher Ryan Junkin, 44, of California, who died of multiple gunshot wounds at the Care and Share shelter.

"He was crying out for help, and he got killed in return," said Junkin's nephew Bobby Rodriguez in a phone call Wednesday from San Luis Obispo, Calif.
