HERMANTOWN, MN- New details tonight surrounding an officer-involved shooting Saturday that left a Hermantown man dead.

The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension says Timothy Majchrzak died of multiple gunshot wounds.

Authorities pursued the 37-year-old, who was driving a motorcycle through Hermantown, at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour.

A vigil Monday marked the area where Timothy Majchrzak  was killed in an officer-involved shooting in Hermantown.

Witnesses we spoke with Monday didn’t want to go on camera but said the man who died, drove through their yard leaving tire tracks before eventually ditching his bike because it was stuck.

The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension says Majchrzak was eventually shot dead by authorities.

We spoke with a friend of Majchrzak’s on Facebook Monday who said he was a quote “good hearted person.”

We also learned today that this wasn’t Majchrzak’s first run-in with the law.

According to court records, Majchrzak had 14 previous convictions in the state of Minnesota and two in Wisconsin.

Charges ranged from DWI to speeding.

The most recent charge was in Superior for burglary and possession of methamphetamine.

The BCA recovered a gun at the scene.

Meanwhile, we’ve also learned that neither deputies with the St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office or Hermantown Police were wearing body cameras.
