Franklin autopsy report differs from police account


The Star Tribune has the Hennepin County autopsy report that shows several discrepancies with the police account of Terrance Franklin's death in the basement of a south Minneapolis home. The reports says Franklin was shot 10 times, not eight, and that he was smaller than the Terrance Franklin police described. Franklin's family received a copy of the autopsy report Friday, one day after a grand jury cleared police officers of wrongdoing in his death.

KSTP TV reports that Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau said at a news conference Thursday evening that she "fully supports" her officers actions that day.

The Star Tribune reports the grand jury reached the decision to clear the officers after two full days of testimony and 19 witnesses.

Franklin died in May of multiple gun shot wounds after a fight with police in the basement of a Minneapolis home, in which authorities maintain he grabbed for a police officers hand gun.

The shooting unleashed broad criticism of the Minneapolis Police Department, especially from the African American community.

KARE 11 reports that Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman says they have done a thorough and complete investigation and the grand jury found there is not enough evidence to pursue charges.
