Man Killed In Deputy-Involved Shooting Identified

MINNESOTA CITY (WCCO) — A Winona man who was killed in an deputy-involved shooting has been identified.

Twenty-five-year-old Chase Edward died of massive head trauma due to a single gunshot wound to the head, according to the Minnesota Regional Medical Examiner’s Office in Dakota County.

At around 11 p.m. Wednesday, police received a call that Kolstad was making terroristic threats at a residence at Highway 61 and Bridge Street in Minnesota City. When they arrived, Kolstad was observed on a nearby bridge where he was pointing a weapon at himself. He then pointed the weapon at the responding officers.

After repeated attempts to get him to drop the weapon, Winona County Sheriff’s Office Deputy John Kyle Hazelton fired his weapon, striking Kolstad, who died at the scene.

Hazelton, a 10-year veteran with the Sheriff’s Office, is on standard administrative leave.

    If “Kolstad was making threats”, and “Kolstad was observed on a nearby bridge”, then why was someone named “Chase Edward” shot in the head? Ask Lou Grant…

    A shot to the head? That will end a 25 year old life in a hurry. I guess the deputy wanted to make sure!
