(MINNEAPOLIS STAR-TRIBUNE) — Responding to a recent 911 call, Hopkins patrol Sgt. Darin Hill and his partner heard yelling and saw a young man crouching behind a car near a house. He was holding what appeared to be a revolver.
The police drew their guns and told him to get down on the ground. Two more young men with guns were nearby, and they too were ordered to the ground.
