Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension has turned its findings of a Duluth Police officer-involved shooting over to the St. Louis County Attorney's office for review.

Duluth Police say two officers fired their weapons at 26-year-old Zachary Premo, killing him, following a single vehicle crash back on June 11th.

It happened on the 300 block of East Locust Street

Police say they shot at the man, who was armed with handgun, after repeatedly yelling loud commands to attempt to get the subject to comply.

Both officers were placed on administrative leave following the incident.

St. Louis Co. Attorney Mark Rubin and Chief Prosecutor Gary Bjorklund will review the material and determine whether an outside referral is warranted.
