BCA concludes investigation in standoff 13 Jun 13

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension has completed its investigation into a North Mankato standoff that occurred in January in which a man was shot and killed by police.  Authorities were called to the Lloyd Tschohl (shole) residence on January 17 to conduct a welfare check.  Several attempts to communicate with Tschohl were unsuccessful.  Authorities eventually broke a window and rammed a door to break it open.  In doing so, officials say Tschohl shot at them and they retreated for cover behind their vehicles.  Authorities say Tschohl emerged from the residence carrying two pistols, raised his ars and fired one shot at officers.  Officials returned fire and according to the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office, struck Tschohl 11 times.  Chief Chris Boyer of the North Mankato Police Department says the events of that day are portrayed accurately in the BCA report.  The Nicollet County Attorney’s Office says no charges will be filed against the officers involved in the standoff.
