Jamar Clark’s Brother Arrested in Rochester
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - Just hours after it was announced no charges would be filed against two Minneapolis police officers in the shooting death of Jamar Clark, his brother was involved in a quiet standoff in Rochester.
Police Captain John Sherwin says officers were called to the 4th Street SE Holiday convenience store around 12:30 a.m. Thursday to investigate a report of a man chasing a woman around inside the store.
Sherwin says the woman was still there when officers arrived but the man was gone. Sherwin says the man - 32-year-old Jamine Robinson - was found at a nearby residence but refused to come out.
It was learned he was wanted on an Olmsted County felony warrant issued after he failed to show up for a court hearing last November involving an earlier reported assault against the same woman found at the store.
An officer on surveillance spotted Robinson at the Holiday store around 8:30 a.m. Thursday and he was taken into custody without incident.
It’s not known what charges he may face in the new case.
