Edina, Minnesota, Oct. 24, 2019 – Earlier this week, the City of Edina held a private meeting with the Quinones family and their attorneys to share some portions of video from Edina’s squad cars during the Sept. 7 officer-involved shooting in Richfield. The Quinones family has asked for privacy.
Because the City does not want to jeopardize Hennepin County’s investigation, the videos will not be made public at this time. After consulting with attorneys, City of Edina staff determined the circumstances presented to them met the requirements of State Statute 13.82. Subd. 15 for allowing portions of the video to be privately viewed by the family. Other responding agencies may make different determinations based on the information they have.
Because this is an active investigation, the City of Edina cannot comment or give more specific details of the incident. For more information, contact the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office at 612-919-5918.
