Minnesota nice

Abby Simons and David Chanen, Strib:

A Mankato police officer said he got a phone call about 1 a.m. Tuesday from an old high school friend.

The man on the other end of the line was Allen Lawrence “Lance” Scarsella III, who confessed that just two hours before he had shot five people at a protest outside the Minneapolis Police Department’s Fourth Precinct station, according to court documents.

He remains in the Hennepin County jail, along with Nathan Gustavsson, 21, of Hermantown, Minn., and Daniel Macey, 26, of Pine City, Minn., who turned themselves in. On Wednesday, police also announced the arrest of Joseph Martin Backman, 27, of Minneapolis, on suspicion of assault.

    By the way: The fifth guy taken in for questioning — the “Hispanic” fellow whose online name is SaigaMarine and whose detaining right-wing bloggers and websites have implied if not outright claimed “proves” the attackers weren’t white supremacists — was let go when it was found that he wasn’t present when the shootings occurred:
