Police data regarding the 5-25-20 MPD critical event will be posted to our frequently requested public information page as it becomes available.


Some of your request is for data that is currently not public information. Officer narratives are currently withheld under MN statute 13.82 because it is currently part of an active investigation. It’s possible that this data will become public after the investigation of this incident is complete, at which time you may submit another request for this data and it will be processed according to the data’s status at that time. Your request is now closed.
