Harris area officer involved shooting death was lawful

The county attorney has closed the case on there being any criminal charges filed against officers involved in a fatal shooting in Chisago County about nine months ago. County Attorney Janet Reiter announced March 23 the actions by law enforcement were justified in the officer involved fatal shooting incident, near Harris, July 10, 2017.

She reviewed the results of an independent shooting investigation and said in a statement; deadly force was “lawfully utilized” when 39-year-old Gregory Shawn Thrower was shot in a field after exiting a stolen car he’d gotten stuck while fleeing authorities. Thrower was reported moving through tall grasses when he pointed a handgun at a number of deputies and a state trooper attempting to apprehend Thrower.

The report by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, which investigates officer-involved shootings said all six deputies and the state patrol trooper fired their weapons. There was no determination announced as to who or how many shots hit Thrower.

A Ruger 40 caliber handgun was recovered under Thrower’s body.

The suspect was being pursued based on a report of car-jacking in the city of North Branch early the same day. The On-Star service in the stolen car had relayed a message to county 9-1-1 dispatch that Thrower wished to have somebody take custody of his young daughter, who he had with him.

He’d abandoned the first car in North Branch when it broke down. He had forced his way into the second car as the owner pulled out of her driveway headed to work that morning. The daughter was traveling with him when he pulled off into the soybean field from the freeway and got stuck.
