The official police reports states Askew was asleep and picked up his gun upon being awakened by the officers, who then shot him multiple times. Sources have told the Flyer the shots entered the car through the vehicle's rear and passenger side windows, and that Askew's seat was reclined.
After an investigation, the MPD cleared the officers of any wrong-doing. The Askew family is expected to issue a response to the investigation's finding later this week.
