Bill banning no-knock warrants passes in House Public Safety Committee
A bill that would ban the use of no-knock warrants has passed the House’s Public Safety Committee.
Amir Locke, 22, was fatally shot by Minneapolis police last February while they were serving a no-knock warrant.
Locke was not named in the warrants for the police raid but was staying at the home of his cousin, Mekhi Speed. Speed was arrested in Winona in connection to the killing of 38-year-old Otis Elder.
His father, Andre Locke, testified on behalf of the legislation.
