A police SWAT team leader who was convicted of assaulting a man while off-duty at a bar has been fired by Minneapolis Police Chief Janeé Harteau. The termination took place on Feb. 21, 2013, but wasn’t made public until Wednesday.
Police say Terrance Franklin, a burglary suspect, was shot during a struggle with police. He died at the scene. Two officers were also shot, but we don’t yet know who shot them. Moments after that shooting, and not too far away, Ivan Romero died. A squad SUV responding to the shooting collided with the motorcycle he was driving with his girlfriend. She’s still recovering.
Families and investigators want answers tonight, questioning why two men are dead and three others, including police officers, are in the hospital. Police were trying to catch Terrance Franklin yesterday afternoon for suspicion of burglary. They say he hid in a house near 27th and Bryant in Minneapolis.
