Names Released of Officers Involved in Shooting in St. Cloud This Week

The names of individuals involved in the officer involved shooting in St. Cloud  earlier this week have been released.

According to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, who continue to review the case, the officer who fired his weapon during the incident was Sergeant Nathan Stewart, a 14-year veteran of the Stearns County Sheriff's Department. The BCA says officers were investigating a possible domestic assault just before midnight Monday at a home on Northwood Lane when an armed 37-year-old Lazaro Diaz broke out a back window and attempted to flee. Diaz reportedly shot several shots around the southwest corner of the home at the chasing officers.

Stewart fired his weapon, hitting Diaz twice in the leg. Two officers used tasers to apprehend Diaz as well as a K9 to completely take him down. St. Cloud officers and Stearns County deputies do not use body cameras at this time, so there is no video of the incident.

Diaz is being treated for non-life threatening injuries in the St. Cloud Hospital. Officials say he had been staying at the residence at the time of the incident, but his permanent residence is Willmar.  Sergeant Stewart and the four police officers with him are on standard administrative leave.

St. Cloud City Council Member Wants To Limit Somali Refugee Resettlement

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - A St. Cloud City Council member plans to propose a moratorium on refugee resettlement.

Jeff Johnson says he's concerned about "the overall quality of life" for St. Cloud residents and wants to limit refugee resettlement until the city gets more information about the number of people moving to the city and the cost to taxpayers. Several council members say Johnson's proposal is off base because resettlement is not the city's responsibility.

The number of refugees admitted into the U.S. is determined by the federal government. The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations launched a petition drive to urge the council to vote against Johnson's proposal which he plans to introduce next month.

The chapter's executive director and St. Cloud State University graduate Jaylani Hussein calls the proposal is despicable and racist.

The proposal may be on Monday's City Council's agenda. More than 10,000 Somali nationals now call St. Cloud home after fleeing their war-torn homeland.
