The video above aired on Dec. 29, 2017, when Fischer made his first court appearance. 

Court records say the man shot inside Minneapolis City Hall raised his knife and approached police after he had harmed himself, according to a search warrant.


The search warrant was filed in Hennepin County Thursday, seeking medical records of Marcus Terrell Fischer.

According to the search warrant filed by the BCA, Fischer was being questioned by police at the Minneapolis City Hall about a shooting incident that occurred on Dec. 13 in northeast Minneapolis. The BCA says after investigators left the room, Fischer pulled a knife from his waistband and began to harm himself.

The search warrant says a uniformed police officer attempted to deploy a TASER to stop Fischer; however, that was unsuccessful.

The document said Fischer then, "had the knife raised as he walked toward and closed the distance with the officers."

The two officers — later identified as Sgt. Gene Suker and Officer Jerome Carey — fired their guns, striking Fischer.

Fischer was treated for his injuries at Hennepin County Medical Center. He is now in custody at the Hennepin County Jail.
