Winston Boogie Smith — felon with 20 prior busts — pulled gun on cops before he was killed


The man who was fatally shot by Minneapolis cops Thursday had been wanted in connection with a felony arms conviction and been involved in at least 20 previous run-ins with authorities, according to records and a report.

Winston Boogie Smith, 32, was gunned down in the Midwest city around 2 p.m. when he “produced a handgun” as members of a US Marshals task force tried to take him into custody on the state warrant, the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Department said.

Smith — who once posed with civil rights lawyer Ben Crump and posted about the George Floyd trial — was wanted in neighboring Ramsey County for failing to appear for a sentencing hearing May 19 after he was convicted of felony firearm possession, WCCO reported.
