Minnesota's Bureau of Criminal Apprehension has finished its investigation into the officer-involved shooting in Duluth early last month.

Two police officers shot and killed 26-year-old Zach Premo in the early morning hours of June 11th on the 300 block of East Locust Street - about two blocks from Central Entrance.

Duluth police said Premo was armed with a gun and didn't respond to officers' commands for more than three minutes. They said Premo reached for the area where the gun was when the two officers fired their duty weapons. They were placed on paid administrative leave which is standard procedure in cases like these.

The BCA has presented its findings to the St. Louis County Attorney's Office for review.
