City of Braham Closes City Buildings

The City of Braham closed all city buildings Thursday after receiving reports that one of the former Minneapolis Police Officers involved in the death of George Floyd lived in Braham.

Braham Chief of Police Eric Baumgart told WCMP, the closures were done as a precautionary measure following a conversation with Minneapolis Director of Public Information John Elder Thursday afternoon.

In response to the information, Braham Police called in all officers, extended police shifts, and asked for additional support from surrounding sheriff's departments. Officers did not report seeing any protesters.

Chief Baumgart said Elder confirmed that none of the four MPD Officers fired on Tuesday have addresses tied to the City of Braham.

City buildings returned to regular operating hours today.
