Mpls Man Charged for Fatal Shooting in Front of Children

A  Minneapolis man was charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of another man in front of four young children, according to Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman.

Fifty-two-year-old Eddie Hubbard was charged in the Friday shooting of 23-year-old Jeremiah Curtis inside Hubbard’s North Minneapolis home. He also was charged with four counts of second-degree assault for pointing the gun at Curtis’ girlfriend and three of the children.

Hubbard made his first appearance Tuesday and bail was set at $500,000.

According to the criminal complaint, Curtis and his girlfriend lived off and on at Hubbard’s home with her four children, two of whom were his. On Friday, Hubbard sent a text message to her, asking them to move out.

While they were packing their belongings, Hubbard shouted up the stairs for Curtis to accompany him to the drugstore. Curtis said they were too busy packing. Hubbard then came to the upstairs bedroom and shot Curtis in the stomach before leaving the scene.
