WARRANT: Suspected cop killer 'prepared'

Posted: Updated:

The day before Mendota Heights Police Officer Scott Patrick was shot and killed, Brian Fitch Sr. apparently told his ex-girlfriend he was prepared to kill a cop, according to search warrants.

Documents obtained by Fox 9 News detail the woman's disclosure to police. She told officers she had been seeing him and had called police about an argument the two had just two days prior to the killing. The woman explained that she believed Fitch had keys to her home, and was upset by the police call. In fact, she said he told her that if he was pulled over, he would shoot an officer.

The woman also claimed that Fitch was using meth daily, and he is expected to make his first court appearance on Friday to be arraigned on two counts of first-degree murder and other charges related to the manhunt that followed the fatal shooting in West St. Paul on July 30.
