The killing of Winston Smith
Sheriff’s deputies on a U.S. Marshals Service task force fatally shot Winston Smith June 3 in an Uptown Minneapolis parking ramp while trying to arrest him on an outstanding firearms warrant.
So far authorities have said little beyond brief written statements, and no body camera video was recorded. The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, which is investigating the shooting, said it will not release the officers’ names because they were working undercover.
On June 13, Deona Erickson died after a man drove his SUV at high speed into a crowd of protesters that had gathered on Lake Street.
