2 Minneapolis police officers cleared in fatal shooting

January 3, 2019

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Two Minneapolis police officers who shot and killed a man in November will not face criminal charges.

Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman says Officers Ryan Keyes and Neal Walsh were justified in using deadly force against 36-year-old Travis Jordan when they responded to a report of a suicidal man Nov. 9.

Freeman says the officers fired eight shots at Jordan when he came at them with a large knife and refused to drop the weapon.

The state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigated the shooting.
