Deputy Meemken justified in use of deadly force Monday, Jan, 28, the Stearns County Attorney's Office formally declined to file criminal charges against Stearns County Deputy Chad Meemken, finding that his use of deadly force against Marcus Michael Barshaw, on Oct. 21, 2012, was justified. The incident began when law enforcement was dispatched to an address in the 300 block of Broad- way Street in the City of Rockville, Stearns County to investigate the shooting death of Jeffrey Jerome Schutz. Barshaw, the primary suspect in the killing, had fled the scene with at least one fire- arm. Several hours after the initial shooting, Barshawwas located in a nearby apartment building. Dep- uty Meemken shot and injured Barshaw as he left the apartment building after Barshaw started to point a firearm in his direction. Review of the evidence in the case demonstrated that Deputy Meem- ken's use of deadly force was justi- fied to protect himself and other officers as well as to prevent the escape of Barshaw, whom Meem- ken reasonably believed had shot and killed Schutz. Barshaw was subsequently indicted by a Stearns County Grand Jury for First Degree Murder in the killing of Schutz and is currently pend- ing trial. Students Youth IH l .......

Mark Anthony Chief MeWorologist, KSAX-TV Freezing rain made some roads slick Weather column: Our string of cold days came to an end as we began to warm-up this past Sat- urday and Sunday. Along with the warmer air came the return of some moisture to the Upper Mid- west. Freezing rain and rain fell across parts of Minnesota on Sun- day, Jan. 27, making for some slick roads at times. Another more potent system pushed across the Upper Midwest Monday evening into Tuesday. It started out as some rain and freez- ing rain once again, and then tran- sitioned into an all-snow event. Some spots across central and west central Minnesota had some heavy snow. This made for some difficult traveling conditions at times across Greater Minnesota. The heaviest snowfall amounts were forecasted to fall from Elbow Lake, Alexandria to Little Falls. Drier air returned to the region by Tuesday evening as high pres- sure pushed across the area. Arc- tic high pressure will return for Thursday, however, as bitterly cold air will be with us for a brief period once again. Wind chill val- ues could dip to near 40 below zero at times. A clipper system could bring some light snow for Friday and into Saturday. This could produce another quick one to two inches of snow across Minnesota. For the latest on road condi- tions you may call 511. Have a great rest of the week and drive carefully! Weather history: On this date in 1893 a "blizzard hit the state of Minnesota with temperatures falling 40 degrees in five hours at Park Rapids." Heavy snow along with blowing snow were reported across much of the state. Weather fact: Some of the most memorable blizzards in the U.S. have occurred on the East Coast, known as Nor'easters. The storms "stall over the coast and last any- where from 12 to 24 hours with snow amounts measured in feet rather than inches."
