Metro Murder Roundup

The Minneapolis Police want your help locating an alleged triggerman in the 2/10/06 murder of Shedrick Turner, as KARE 11 News reports: "Minneapolis police seek public's help".

Broadway Avenue in north Minneapolis has been the scene of several murders this year. One of the first took place on February 10th on the sidewalk outside of 905.

Minneapolis police have arrested four people in connection with the shooting death of Shedrick Turner, but they believe the person who fired the shots is the man in the photos to the left.

Police say they were taken by a store surveillance camera several days before Turner was gunned down.

They are asking anyone who recognizes the man to call police at 612-692-8477.
Here's the alleged piece of garbage:

Meanwhile, consistent with evident spread of violence from Minneapolis/St. Paul to the suburbs (ok, many will argue Brooklyn Park is an extension of North Minneapolis) is a KSTP report of murder: "Brooklyn Park man shot, killed".

Brooklyn Park police say a man was shot inside an apartment building on the 6200 block of 65th avenue north.

Police were called to the Eden Park Apartments just after midnight. Paramedics attempted CPR, but the victim died at the scene.

Police have no one in custody at this time but are following leads.

Brooklyn Park police said marijuana was found near the victim's body.
This appears to be a drug deal gone bad, but murder is murder. It will be interesting to see from whence the killer came.
