    A cousin of Amir Locke pleaded guilty on Friday to a murder count in a deadly confrontation that led to the police no-knock raid that ended Locke's life. Mekhi Speed, 18, entered a plea agreement in an adult court in which he pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting one count of second-degree unintentional murder while committing a robbery in exchange for the dismissal of an intentional second-degree murder charge. PROSECUTORS WON'T CHARGE OFFICER WHO SHOT AMIR LOCKE “Everything happened fast,” he told the court, per the Associated Press. Speed attempted to rob drugs from Otis Elder, 38, on Jan. 10. During a struggle, a shot was fired killing Elder, but Speed is unsure about who pulled the trigger or whether his accomplice had a gun on him, he told the court. Speed said he was armed with a handgun when he tried to rob Elder, who was the father of two, he admitted. During the robbery, he was using marijuana, alcohol, and Percocet and now has symptoms of PTSD. Speed will be moved to...
    (CNN)Authorities have released the no-knock search warrants for the raid that led to 22-year-old Amir Locke's killing earlier this month -- and the documents show St. Paul police argued the controversial method was the safest way to execute their search, for both officers and suspects. "A no-knock warrant enables officers to execute the warrant more safely by allowing officers to make entry into the apartment without alerting the suspects inside. This will not only increase officer safety, but it will also decrease the risk for injuries to the suspects and other residents nearby," St. Paul police Sgt. Dan Zebro wrote in his warrant application.Police requested those warrants as they zeroed in on a Minneapolis apartment building in their hunt for suspects -- including Locke's teenage cousin -- and evidence connected to a St. Paul homicide. Locke was not named in any of the warrants and his family has now called for the abolition of no-knock warrants. The search warrant applications, made public Thursday, were approved by Hennepin County Judge Peter Cahill, the same judge who presided over the trial of...
    The same judge who presided over the trial for former Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin, who was convicted of George Floyd’s murder, signed off on the no-knock warrant that resulted in an officer shooting and killing Amir Locke in another high-profile police killing of a Black man in the Twin Cities.   The warrants were made public Thursday following the arrest of Locke’s 17-year-old cousin, who was the subject of the warrant and is charged with the murder of an alleged drug dealer, 39-year-old Otis Elder.  Fox News Digital is not naming the 17-year-old because he is being prosecuted as a minor, Hennepin County prosecutors are pushing to have the teen tried as an adult in the Jan. 10 murder of Elder. St. Paul fire paramedics responded to a 911 call to find Elder shot and lying in the street near a vehicle.   AMIR LOCKE SHOOTING DEATH: MINNESOTA COPS NAB MINOR WANTED IN MURDER CASE THAT PROMPTED FATAL NO-KNOCK WARRANT  The warrant notes that suspects fled the scene of the shooting in a gray Mercedes – which was reported...
    A teenager has been arrested and charged in a homicide investigation that led to the shooting of Amir Locke during a no-knock warrant raid by Minnesota police last week. Prosecutors filed a petition in the Ramsay County Juvenile Court against Mekhi Speed, a 17-year-old who was Locke's cousin and turns 18 in a month, saying he is charged with two counts of second-degree murder in connection to a Jan. 10 shooting and asking to move proceedings to an adult court, according to court documents. TWO OF THREE TENNESSEE INMATES WHO ESCAPED THROUGH AIR VENT ARE DEAD "A 17-year-old male was arrested at about 3:45 p.m. yesterday in Winona, Minn., by the Southeast Metro Task Force, the Ramsey County Violent Crime Enforcement Team, and members of the SPPD Special Investigations Unit," the Saint Paul Police Department said Tuesday. "He was booked for Murder 2 in the Ramsey County Juvenile Detention Center, and charges are expected today from the Ramsey County Attorney’s Office." Last week, police executed a no-knock search warrant on an apartment as part of...
    On Wednesday, Minneapolis police executed a no-knock warrant on a downtown apartment and then in the next nine seconds, proceeded to shoot and kill 22-year-old Amir Locke, as he lay wrapped up in a blanket on a couch. Interim police Chief Amelia Huffman told reporters that the shooting took place around 7 a.m. The officers who entered the apartment were SWAT team members acting on warrants in service of the St. Paul Police Department. Huffman said that Locke reached over and grabbed a gun that was next to where he was possibly sleeping, and pointed it “in the direction of officers.” This is why, Huffman says, the police, in 9 seconds, killed him. But Locke’s family wants some serious answers as body camera footage and the fact that Locke legally owned his gun, that Locke’s name wasn’t even on any of the warrants used to make this invasion legal, among other things, should have precluded him—and frankly anybody—from this kind of execution.  In the video, which can be seen below, heavily armed and armored SWAT team members appear to use a key to enter the...
    Welcome to the Glean, MinnPost’s twice-daily roundup of Minnesota news. According to the Pioneer Press, St. Paul police requested a “knock and announce” warrant for the raid that resulted in the killing of Amir Locke in Minneapolis on Wednesday morning, but Minneapolis police refused to carry out the warrant unless it was a “no knock” warrant.  Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison’s office is working with the Hennepin County Attorney to review the shooting and consider possible criminal charges.

    Warning: The following video footage may be disturbing to some viewers. CNN aired on Friday footage of Minneapolis police fatally shooting a Black man, Amir Locke, who was apparently not named in the no-knock search warrant related to a homicide investigation. In police body-cam video of the Wednesday raid, a SWAT officer inserts and twists a key to open a door. One officer yells, “Police! Search warrant!” while another officer yells the same. Those words can be heard multiple times as police entered the residence. They then call for Locke to put his hands up. Locke was on a couch and was apparently asleep until he woke up to the police, who also shouted “Hands!” and “Get on the ground!” Locke reportedly held a gun as police shot and killed him. According to The Star Tribune, “He was struck twice in the chest and once in the wrist.” Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison and Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman announced on Friday they will review the fatal shooting. Locke’s death comes less than two years after another Black man, George Floyd,...

Get a daily recap of the facts that matter. Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.Early on Wednesday morning, a Minneapolis police officer working as part of a SWAT team shot and killed Amir Locke using a raid tactic that the city, and its Democratic Mayor Jacob Frey, had said they would ban in the wake of George Floyd’s murder. A 22-year-old Black man sleeping on his friend’s couch, Locke was shot within nine seconds of the police entering the downtown apartment. Police confirmed, after releasing body-camera footage Thursday night, the SWAT team conducted a no-knock raid—a controversial tactic cops used in Louisville, Kentucky, when they killed Breonna Taylor and which politicians had said they would ban in Minneapolis after the murder of George Floyd.  Police noted Locke had his hand on a gun, but due to the lack of warning before police entered the apartment, the speed at which they crossed the threshold, and the chorus of...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — The Chicago City Council is now taking wrong raids by Chicago Police seriously, holding a hearing on the subject Wednesday. As CBS 2’s Jim Williams reported, the special hearing was a combined meeting of the City Council’s Public Safety and Human Relations committees. Police Supt. David Brown was present. The City Council did not hold any such hearings during the two years the CBS 2 investigators were exposing dozens of wrong raids. But they were pushed to act when CBS 2 broke the Anjanette Young case. Young was a victim of a botched raid conducted by Chicago police, which was recorded in February of 2019. Lightfoot had criticized the city’s Law Department for seeking to block CBS 2 from airing video footage of the wrong raid of Young’s home. A federal judge denied that request, and Lightfoot has since said that it was a mistake, though she has denied knowing about the request beforehand.
