The NAACP's St. Paul chapter is questioning the police version of events that ended with officers shooting and killing a man this week in a drug investigation.
The civil-rights group says damage to Terrance Gaddy's vehicle doesn't match police statements that Gaddy had used his vehicle as a weapon by ramming police vehicles and nearly pinning an officer.
Police Sgt. Paul Paulos tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press he can't discuss details of the case because of the ongoing investigation.
Gaddy was stopped in St. Paul on Tuesday after Minneapolis police suspected he was delivering crack cocaine. Police say they used their unmarked squad cars to block him in and he began to ram their vehicles.
A lawyer for Gaddy's passenger says that explanation doesn't match his client's version.
