Senator Hayden Responds to Blevins Shooting

SAINT PAUL, Minn. — Assistant Senate DFL Leader Jeff Hayden, DFL-Minneapolis, released the following quote in response to the officer-involved shooting resulting in the death of Thurman Blevins.

“Another young black man was shot and killed in Minneapolis. His name was Thurman Blevins. I join colleagues in urging patience as details from the investigation are released, but while the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension conducts a thorough investigation, another Minnesota family is grieving another tragic loss of life.

“The trauma of gun violence needs to end. We need to be serious and take real action to find policies that will keep us safe in our communities. I don’t want one more family to grieve a loss like Mr. Blevins.”
