Protesters call for justice in fatal Eagan officer-involved shooting

Protesters with Council on American-Islamic Relations Minnesota and other justice groups are calling for the release of video and other information in connection to the fatal officer-involved shooting in Eagan earlier this month.

People rallied at the Eagan Police Department and Eagan City Hall, holding signs and flyers stating "Justice for Isak."

"The evidence is their right, it's the community's right, because your city is not going to be the same anymore," said Suzan Samaha, a protester. "What just happened is going to happen more if we don't stop it, if we don't fix it."

According to Eagan police, on the evening of July 2 officers responded a domestic assault involving a gun. There was a short pursuit until they contained the man, identified as Isak Abdirahman Aden, near the 1900 block of Seneca Drive. There were hours of negotiations, but at one point, officers fired, hitting Aden. He later died at Regions Hospital.

Over the weekend, the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension identified the five officers involved in the incident. Four of the officers are part of the Bloomington Police Department, while one officer is part of the Eagan Police Department.

The investigation is ongoing.
