Minneapolis police released the bodycam footage from the fatal shooting of 23-year-old Dolal Idd that occurred outside a Holiday gas station 24-hours earlier.
Police say Dolal Bayle Idd, 23, was a suspect in a felony, and as the video shows, Dolal Idd fired on the MPD officers first, which was also corroborated by witnesses.
The footage, from one officer’s camera, shows squad cars corner Idd’s white car at about 6:15 p.m. at the Holiday gas station off East 36th Street and Cedar Avenue.
After showing the full clip, afterward, slowing down the video at when the first shot rang out, you can clearly see Idd behind the driver’s side door window.
Then a moment later the sound of a single gunshot rings out, while simultaneously Idd’s driver’s side window explodes OUTWARDS toward the police.
Only after Idd fired his gun did the MPD officers began firing back at the car, killing Idd.
Police Chief Medaria Arradondo stated in his news conference that Idd’s family was shown that bodycam video first.
During a press conference early Thursday evening, Chief Arradondo explained why his officer cornered the car in the first place.
“Our officers … from our community response team were conducting an investigation based on a weapons investigation, and that resulted in a traffic stop at the 36th and Cedar Avenue Holiday gas station,”
Police only plan to release body cam footage from one officer. The officers involved are on standard leave while the investigation is continuing.
Ilhan Omar Abhorrently Uses The Justified Shooting Of Dolal Idd To Enrage Minneapolis’ Somali Community
Despite the Minneapolis police releasing the bodycam footage which proves Idd fired first. Not to mention the fact that eyewitnesses corroborate what transpired.
Instead of Ilhan Omar telling the truth which is at this moment all the evidence points to this being a justified shooting.
Ilhan Omar went on Twitter HOURS AFTER the Bodycam footage was made public, and abhorrently called the shooting a “state-sanctioned murder”
“MPD is a joke, this isn’t transparency or accountability. A man was killed, his family terrorized & robbed of a son and all they are left w/ is more questions than answers. Let’s stop normalizing + justifying state sanctioned murder by those who take an oath to uphold the law”

Sorry, Ilhan Omar, the only joke I can see is the fact that you were elected to Congress, which affords you a platform to spew your simpleminded stupidity.
