HASTINGS, Minn. (AP) — State investigators say a box cutter blade was found at the scene of a fatal police shooting in Hastings.

Twenty-three-year-old Keagan Johnson-Lloyd was killed Monday evening during an encounter with Hastings police. The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension says Johnson-Lloyd stabbed a fellow resident at a group home and fled before the encounter.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office says Johnson-Lloyd died of multiple gunshot wounds.

The BCA is leading the investigation. The agency has not said what prompted Officer Geoff Latsch to shoot Johnson-Lloyd. Latsch is on standard administrative leave.
