Medical professionals are required to notify law enforcement if they treat various injuries like gunshot wounds or burns to law enforcement. The way the law sits right now, by the time law enforcement is notified of an overdose, it may be too late to pursue charges against the person who supplied the drugs, according to Olmsted County Sheriff Kevin Torgerson.
Schools across the country have experienced false calls regarding active shooters in recent weeks, prompting law enforcement to investigate the matter. In Minnesota, 15 schools, from Rochester to Cloquet received hoax calls this week.
The Emergency Response Unit in Olmsted County, Minnesota, responded to a standoff Aug. 20. The man, Michael Molitor, 37, of Pine Island, fired several shots at law enforcement. Molitor, an Army veteran with a 2006 deployment in Iraq, is asking the court to let him go to a veteran focused treatment center in Texas.
