Duy Ngo took his own life last week; another MPD officer almost killed him in 2003
Duy Ngo, the troubled Minneapolis police officer who committed suicide last week, is to be buried today at Resurrection Cemetery after a funeral service at the Cathedral of St. Paul.

He shot and killed himself at his Mendota Heights home last Monday, only a few hours before he was due in court to be cross examined in a case about a woman accused of obstructing justice.

Investigators have not said whether Ngo left any kind of note before shooting himself, but his life since 2003 had been filled with pain after being severely wounded by fellow MPD Officer Charles Storlie in a case of friendly fire during an undercover stakeout. He later won a $4.5 million settlement from the city. It was the city's largest settlement involving a Minneapolis police officer.
