St. Paul NAACP questions account of fatal police shooting

The St. Paul chapter of the NAACP is raising questions of police accounts of an officer-involved fatal shooting of a man this week during a drug investigation. The NAACP claims damage to the vehicle of the man, 41-year-old Terrance Gaddy, doesn't match up to police statements that Gaddy used his vehicle as a weapon by slamming it into police vehicles and nearly pinning an officer.

The St. Paul chapter of the NAACP is raising questions of police accounts of an officer-involved fatal shooting of a man this week during a drug investigation, the Pioneer Press reported.

The NAACP claims damage to the vehicle of the man, 41-year-old Victor Terrance Gaddy, doesn't match up to police statements that Gaddy used his vehicle as a weapon by slamming it into police vehicles and nearly pinning an officer.

The president of St. Paul's NAACP chapter said the vehicle in a photo published by the Pioneer Press didn't appear to show the sort of damage he expected after reading the police report.

Gaddy's passenger in the car, 20-year-old Terrence Jovan, was charged Thursday with fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance.
