The Hennepin County medical examiner’s office said Franklin died of multiple gunshot wounds. The sources said it was unclear which officer other than Peterson shot Franklin.
Franklin’s body has been released from the medical examiner’s office. His friends were planning to hold a vigil Friday evening.
About 30 minutes after the shooting, a police vehicle responding to a call for assistance at the scene collided with the motorcycle at an intersection, killing Romero.
In a Friday news release, the Police Department said investigators had interviewed officer Joshua Young, the driver of the police SUV involved in the collision with Romero.
Harteau said the interview had been delayed due to the officer’s anxiety over the motorcyclist’s death. Young joined the department in 2006 and was awarded the Medal of Commendation in 2012 for his work apprehending a suspect who was assaulting a female in the hall of an apartment complex. He also was awarded the Life Saving Award for quick actions that saved a baby’s life in 2012.
Harteau said Meath and Muro will be interviewed next week.
