We are currently living in the third decade of the 21st century, yet we still have stories like this. Simply chilling.
Brooklyn Park police said Monday that they believe a man intentionally struck his neighbor with his car, killing him and fleeing the scene.
Family members of the victim identified him on social media as Paul Pfeifer.
Police apprehended the driver after they tracked the car to a nearby house later that night, according to Mark Bruley, deputy chief. The department is pursuing homicide charges, which could come as soon as Tuesday.
“We believe at this point, this was an intentional act,” Bruley said.
In a statement, Pfeifer’s husband, Joseph Pfeifer St. James, said “hate is what killed him.” He declined to be interviewed by the Star Tribune.
Just another reason why we have a Pride season. It’s important to celebrate who we are, how far we’ve come, and just how far we have to go … even here in Minnesota.😩
