Edina, Minnesota, police officers fatally shot a man who had a knife late Saturday night after a vehicle pursuit, much of which was livestreamed on Facebook. Officers reported that the man ran a red light near York Avenue in Edina and refused to pull over. A chase began as the driver continued running through stoplights, according to emergency dispatch audio. Police forced the car to a stop and the man exited his car.
“Drop the knife! Drop the knife!” officers yelled, according to dispatch audio. “Shots fired. Shots fired,” police say seconds later. Officers can be heard requesting a medic and extra squad cars for crowd control. The man, later identified as Brian J. Quinones, livestreamed himself being chased by police.
Quinones’ phone continues recording for another 97 minutes as police work to secure the scene behind the Virginian apartment complex. In a Facebook post just before the live stream, Quinones had written, “So sorry.”
