The St. Anthony Park District 12 Community Council just issued the following statement about the Michael Brasel shooting and its board meeting tonight (Thursday) will leave time for community members to share thoughts and concerns about this incident.
Here is the full statement:
On behalf of the St. Anthony Park Community Council (SAPCC), we want to extend our condolences to the family of Michael Brasel, a beloved father, husband, neighbor, friend and youth hockey coach, who was murdered this past weekend in North SAP.
Thankfully, gun violence is a rare occurrence in St. Anthony Park. It is, however, a deeply felt tragedy wherever it occurs. Mr. Brasel had deep, long-time roots in Saint Anthony Park and the grief at his death is shared widely.
A GoFundMe account was set up for those who want to support the Brasel family.
The Saint Paul Police Department urges anyone with information or potential video from external cameras to call 651-266-5650.
SAPCC will hold space during our Board meeting Thursday, May 11th from 7-9pm for community members to share their stories and concerns. Commander Stacy Murphy will be available to listen and answer questions. The meeting will be held via Zoom and all are welcome.
