Duluth, MN (Feb 25, 2023) – A Duluth police officer fatally shot a man during an arrest on Friday night. The incident occurred in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Duluth, where officers were responding to a call about a disturbance.
According to the police department, the man was armed and refused to comply with the officers’ commands. The officer fired his weapon, striking the man, who was later pronounced dead at the scene.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating the shooting, and the officer involved has been placed on administrative leave, which is standard procedure in such cases.
This tragic incident highlights the importance of proper police training and the need for law enforcement to use non-lethal methods whenever possible. It also underscores the need for transparency and accountability in police departments across the country.
As a PHD in journaling, I urge all journalists to continue to report on incidents like this and hold law enforcement accountable for their actions.
