ST. PAUL — The mother of a man killed by St. Paul police is asking to view video that she saidmay show her son’s final moments.

Cordale Quinn Handy, of Waukegan, Illinois, died of multiple gunshot wounds last week. Authorities have said the 29-year-old Handy, who was black, pointed a gun at police before he was shot.

The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension has said video from a nearby building doesn’t capture the full incident.

Kim Handy sent a letter to state and local authorities Tuesday, saying she believes two seized cellphones contain audio and video of her son — and she wants to see the footage.

According to a press release, a Department of Public Safety spokesman said authorities can arrange for the family to see the video after the investigation is complete and before it’s publicly released.
