Man shot by police at Minneapolis City Hall appears in court

After multiple delays, the man shot by police at Minneapolis City Hall finally made his first court appearance.
Almost two weeks after being shot by two Minneapolis police officers,18-year-old Marcus Fischer has been released from the Hennepin County Medical Center and booked into the Hennepin County Jail.

Friday, Fischer was deemed well enough to appear before a judge. In court, the teen was walking and standing on his own.

Fischer is facing a number of charges including first-degree assault and robbery. He is accused of robbing and shooting a man in northeast Minneapolis earlier this month.

Police say Fischer stole a gun from the man selling it. Before fleeing, Fischer used his own gun to fire one shot into the seller's chest.

It’s the same case that he was being questioned about at City Hall last week when police say the teen pulled out a knife and began stabbing himself. When Fischer lunged at authorities, they opened fire.

During his brief court appearance, a judge set a bail hearing for Jan. 3.

Fischer’s father was among those in the court audience. When asked about the case, he declined to comment.
