Zachary Premo1

Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) — The St. Louis County Attorney’s Office has released their review of an officer involved shooting back in June that left a 26 year old Duluth man dead.

The Attorney’s Officer found the amount of force used by Duluth Police Officers Matthew Hendrickson and Jacob Peterson was authorized by statute and justified by the circumstances.

Back on June 11th, authorities were called to a report of a single vehicle crash in the area of Orange Street and Arlington Avenue around two in the morning where the driver had fled.

Two officers responded to the area of the 300 block of East Locust Street that was associated with the registered owner of the vehicle. It’s there, they say, that one officer allegedly encountered Zachary Premo with a handgun.

The officer radioed for assistance and says he shouted verbal commands in an attempt to get Premo to comply. The second officer responded to assist and both say they repeatedly yelled loud commands for about three minutes in an attempt to get Premo to comply.

Officers say they attempted to take the man into custody, however Premo allegedly reached for the area where the gun was located.

Investigators say officers Matthew Hendrickson and Jacob Peterson opened fire, shooting nine rounds, seven of them hitting Premo.

Officers were called to a report of a single vehicle crash in the area of Orange Street and Arlington Avenue around 1:59 A.M Tuesday morning, where the driver had fled.
