The agents called paramedics, but Klimek was declared dead at the scene. The Anoka County Medical Examiner’s Office is working to determine an exact cause of death.
At the request of the BCA St. Paul police are conducting the official investigation because their agents were involved in the shooting. Once the investigation is complete the police will turn its findings over to the Douglas County Attorney’s Office for further examination.
