Minneapolis Police Chief Brian O’Hara honored Mitchell’s dedication and bravery, stating, « Jamal died doing what society asks all police officers to do. He did his job, and he was loyal to his oath until his death. There is no more honorable service one can provide. »

Officer Mitchell’s death marks the first line-of-duty death for Minneapolis Police since 2002, highlighting the gravity of this tragedy for the department and the community.
