Terrance Franklin died in May from multiple gunshot wounds after scuffling with police officers in the basement of a Minneapolis home. Two officers were also wounded during the confrontation. Police say Franklin was a burglary suspect fleeing officers when he broke into a home in the Uptown area. While fighting with Sgt. Andy Stender, his dog and other officers in the basement, Franklin tried to get control of an officer's firearm, police said. The shots that were fired that day killed Franklin and wounded officers Michael Meath and Ricardo Muro. Below, an artist rendering of the basement where Franklin died.
