Man shot by airport police last year pleads guilty

Author:

A man who was shot in the head by airport police after authorities say he drove a car at the officers has pleaded guilty.

Mohamud Maye pleaded guilty to first-degree assault on a police officer on Tuesday – the day his trail was set to begin – in connection with the April 25, 2015, incident at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

Airport police had responded to the parking ramp at Terminal 1 after reports of a suspicious vehicle. That’s when Maye drove at them, prosecutors said, and when Maye refused orders to stop, officers fired at the car. 

The car then crashed and Maye was arrested and taken to the Hennepin County Medical Center to be treated for a gunshot wound to the head.

A review of the incident found the officers' actions were justified and they were cleared of any wrongdoing.

Maye is expected to be sentenced on June 2.
