Members of Robert Cobb II’s family have confirmed that he was the victim of the shooting.
On the highway, a vehicle that appeared to be acting suspiciously caused the stop. According to sources within the police department who spoke with FOX 9, the authorities are currently attempting to jail him on the suspicion that he violated a protective order. This information was provided to FOX 9 by the sources.
The information that was provided by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety indicates that the incident occurred on Monday morning at about 1:50 a.m. in the neighborhood of Dowling Avenue on Interstate 94. The vehicle that was being driven by Cobb was stopped by members of the State Patrol due to the fact that it did not have any taillights. Cobb was the one behind the wheel.
According to reports from the State Patrol, they made an attempt to detain the driver after learning that the driver was sought on a warrant for a felony-level violation issued out of Ramsey County. This attempt was made after the State Patrol learned that the driver was wanted on the warrant. The arrest warrant was issued in the county of Ramsey. Cobb allegedly did not want to get out of his vehicle, and when the deputies tried to pull him out of the vehicle, he ran away when they tried to help him.
