Officials identify man killed by Devils Lake police officer
DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) — Authorities have identified a man who was shot and killed last week by a Devils Lake police officer.
The Devils Lake Journal reports that 26-year-old Daniel Fuller was killed on July 5 after officers responded to a call about a suspicious person. Police say Fuller died after a struggle ended with an officer’s gun being fired.
Devils Lake Police Chief Joe Knowski says the officer has been placed on paid administrative leave, which is standard policy. The name of the officer has not been released.
Knowski says the shooting was a “real tragedy for everyone and the city.”
The state Bureau of Criminal Investigation is handling the case.
