There is uneasy discomfort among observers of the political pressure and mixed signals surrounding the leadership of the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) in general.

Unanswered questions have surfaced as the case plagues the streets of North Minneapolis. One is whether Blevins had a gun as the police have stated in their reports. According to the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA), two 911 calls reported a man shooting a handgun, identified by one caller as silver.
