Chase Edward Kolstad (6314)



9/15/2011: Kolstad's girlfriend called police the evening of Sept. 14, saying he had threatened to kill her, then others and himself. Officers began a search for Kolstad, who they believed was armed with a gun. Police found Kolstad in a Minnesota City park, where he made his way to the ledge of a bridge and continued a standoff with police. Officers said Kolstad, who was later found to have been armed with a knife, not a gun, ignored orders to drop his weapon and instead wielded the weapon as though it were a gun. Hazelton fired one shot at Kolstad, killing him. http://www.mprnews.org/story/2012/03/23/deputy-shooting
