Email

MAPLEWOOD, Minn. (AP) -- The Maplewood police department faces an emotional decision over what to do with a vehicle in which an officer was fatally shot in May.

The $34,000 SUV runs fine. But it's the vehicle in which Sgt. Joseph Bergeron was sitting when one of two suspected carjackers shot him in the head.

Police Chief Dave Thomalla says there was no doubt the SUV would be removed from the police fleet. But it's unclear what options remain.
