Stupid SOB should be dead but an illegal BB gun? Five years in prison for a BB gun? Looks like a suicide by cop attempt. Man shot by Edina police found guilty of illegally owning BB gun A man shot by Edina police in August was convicted of illegally owning a BB gun. Colin Peter Reinsmoen, 36, was found guilty Monday after four hours of deliberation. His sentencing is April 19 and he is expected to receive five years in prison. According to the criminal complaint, and testimony in the week-long trial, Edina police were called to an Edina home on Aug. 8 by Reinsmoen’s parents, who said their son had threatened them. Upon arrival, police found Reinsmoen with his hands covered by a blanket. He initially refused to show the officers his hands and then threw the blanket aside and pointed what appeared to be a handgun directly at one of the officers. Two officers shot at Reinsmoen multiple times, seriously wounding him. A black semi-automatic BB gun was recovered. Reinsmoen’s defense was that the gun did not qualify as a firearm. The jury disagreed because he already had convictions for simple robbery and fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance, and he was prohibited from possessing a firearm. The jury acquitted Reinsmoen of second-degree assault.
