Warrant: Minneapolis police shot Dolal Idd after attempted gun sting
The warrant to search his home sought guns and record keeping materials.
Minneapolis police were attempting a gun sting when they exchanged gunfire with Dolal Idd last week outside a South Side gas station last week, killing him, according to new court documents.

The shooting occurred Wednesday night, when police said Idd showed up to a gun deal at a Holiday gas station at 36th Street and Cedar Avenue and when officers moved in to arrest him, a "gunfight ensued," a state investigator wrote in a sworn affidavit accompanying a search warrant.

The warrant, filed Monday in Hennepin County District court, sheds new light on the circumstances leading up to the fatal encounter. It also explains what led authorities to an early morning search of an Eden Prairie home where Idd lived with his parents and siblings, leading to criticism of how the family was treated and the subsequent release of body camera video of the raid. The warrant says that authorities suspected they might find guns, bookkeeping materials, videos and photos related to Idd's alleged gun possession, but nothing was recovered.

Couldn't the police have used a Social Worker to conduct the gun sting?

Didn’t EP outlaw gun sales within city limits?

That would have prevented Arnzen Arms, Gander Outdoors, and Scheels from opening and selling firearms. I think Gander is closed again after the light rail project stalled.

I thought that they'd imposed a moritorium on new gun stores.

Just think about it. Another life ended prematurely from trying to enforce gun laws. Let's end this. If only those gun laws didn't exist, this future Dr, and Nobel peace Prize recipient would be alive. His life was cut short by these racist gun control laws!

My understanding is this, that they did. I guess they are only down with gun sales by known felons to other felons in EP.

Makes one wonder how Scheels got the OK for their EP Mall expansion, though. Were they approved because their other stores were already selling firearms, or did they have to get a waiver? Or - third option - were they already approved prior to the EP city council imposing the moratorium?

Does Scheel's sell guns/ ammo at the EP Location?
Playing around with their website, using "Remington", or "Mossberg" as a search term, I can 'Pick up today' numerous firearms, and ammo at the Mankato store, but none at the EP store....

I haven't been there to verify in person, but I have been told they do by a couple of friends who live and shop out that direction, and numerous websites that I have read indicate they do, also.

Wasn’t it passed right after Scheels was approved?

That could be. I wasn't sure what the timing on that was, if it was after Arnzen opened, or after the Scheels expansion was approved.
