MINNEAPOLIS - On Thursday morning, the Minneapolis Police Department released its supplemental reports in the case of the shooting death of 22-year-old Terrance Franklin.
The 226-page report details the events of May 10 when Franklin was fatally shot by two Minneapolis officers during an altercation in the basement of a home he had broken in to after fleeing police
Those reports are the first person accounts of all the officers on the scene that day, and they all corroborate what the department says happened when Terrance Franklin was shot.
The department's claim is that Franklin started a brawl in a dark basement with two offers, wrestled a gun away from one of them, and shot them both. Seconds later the two officers shot and killed Franklin.
Late Thursday, Michael Padden, the attorney for Terrance Franklin's family, said he has evidence that proves that is not what took place in the basement. He claims Franklin was shot by police and that Franklin never once fired the officer's guns.
Padden says his evidence is a cell phone video recorded by someone outside the home where the shootings occurred.
On the video, Padden says, you can hear Franklin surrender to police by saying the name he went by, "Mookie."
Eighteen seconds later, Padden contends the audio on the video proves Franklin was pleading to be released saying, "Let me go."

Padden says this is all relevant to his theory that Franklin was cooperating in some way, and that police shot and killed him anyway. He says he plans to file a civil lawsuit against the city or the police department in the next thirty days.
The police department said it stands behind what Chief Harteau said last week after a Grand Jury cleared the officers of any wrongdoing.
