ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Police in St. Paul are releasing body camera footage that shows a man fatally shot by officers had a gun. Officers Matthew Jones and Vincent Adams shot 43-year-old William James Hughes in an apartment building porch on Aug. 5. Hughes' family has questioned why the officers killed him.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Rep. Keith Ellison says he won't quit Minnesota's race for attorney general despite a former girlfriend's claim that he physically abused her. Ellison issued a fresh denial of Karen Monahan's allegation on Friday as he ventured onto the campaign trail. Some national liberal groups have called for Ellison to drop his campaign, although Democrats in the state are so far standing with him.

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - A citizen group is suing St. Cloud for selling city park land to Costco for what it contends is less than fair market value. Costco Wholesale in late July purchased about 19 acres of Heritage Park for $3.5 million. Citizens for Government Accountability filed a civil complaint Thursday in state court claiming the sale amounts to an illegal business subsidy. Mayor Dave Kleis says attorneys for the city and Costco are reviewing the complaint but it won't stop construction.

HALLOCK, Minn. (AP) - Authorities in far northwestern Minnesota are digging on a farm as they investigate a 22-year-old missing person case. The Kittson County Sheriff's Office is using backhoes and cadaver dogs to search for clues in the disappearance of Becky Jo Look. Authorities believe she was slain in 1995 or 1996. The sheriff's office earlier this month said that it had come across some "compelling information" in the case and decided to look into it again.
