Quote Me: Duluth Police Chief Mike Tusken

Police Chief Mike Tusken on the Duluth homicide that took place Saturday: “Any loss of life is significant. The victim was someone’s son. He was someone’s friend. This is a tragedy for his family, and for those who knew him. This act also impacts the sense of safety in our community. This is an example of guns being in the hands of people who are using guns to solve conflict instead of alternative non-violent methods. The Duluth Police Department works actively to take guns off of the streets every day. We work with the Lake Superior Violent Crimes Task Force, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to take guns out of the hands of people who are possessing or using firearms illegally.”

Notes: Since the incident, the Duluth Police Department has increased its presence in the downtown area in response to the shooting. This is the 14th shooting event in Duluth in 2021.
