MINNEAPOLIS -- The suspect in a stabbing death in Minneapolis was released without charges Monday.

Twenty-two-year-old Justin Jackson, of Minneapolis, was stabbed just after 7:00 p.m. Friday in the 3700 block of Chicago Avenue South.

Officers arrested the suspect near the scene of the stabbing. The man was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center for treatment of a head injury.

Minneapolis Police say their investigation turned up witnesses and video from a bus stop indicating the suspect acted in self-defense.

Authorities say the video shows the suspect sitting at the bus stop when he was suddenly attacked by several men, including Jackson. The men chased the suspect across the street, that's when police say the suspect used a knife to protect himself.

Flash mob? Gang related? defending oneself works.

So witnesses say he was attacked, the cameras show he was attacked, yet the police still call him a suspect?
Good thing it wasn’t one of those evil ballistic thingies.
