According to CNN:

Neither the city of Minneapolis nor its police department is handling the investigation.
That's to avoid having the Minneapolis Police Department "investigate itself in these most sensitive cases, and in so doing, help build community trust in the oversight process," said the mayor in a statement.
The decision to have the BCA take over "critical incident" investigations involving Minneapolis police officers was made in 2014, according to the mayor's statement.
"I think it was the right move, but there are tradeoffs to this policy," Hodges said. "Since MPD doesn't manage the investigation itself, the city doesn't have access to -- and thus cannot share -- information about the investigation until it's made public."
BCA = Department of Public Safety's Bureau of Criminal Apprehension
