ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Minnesota’s attorney general will decide whether a St. Paul police officer should be charged in connection with the non-fatal shooting last month of a black man who was hiding from police after allegedly broadcasting a live sexual assault .
Minnesota attorney general Keith Ellison announced Friday that he and the Washington County attorney’s office will be reviewing the November 28 shooting of Joseph Javonte Washington after state investigators finalized their investigation.
A criminal complaint states that 31-year-old Joseph Javonte Washington streamed sexual assault and then forced the woman to drive to St. Paul.
Police followed Washington to a trash can. When he got out, the black man was shot dead by Officer Anthony Dean.
