Arrest made in fatal Brooklyn Park shooting
Brooklyn Park police arrested a suspect in connection with a shooting Friday that killed a 19-year-old man.
Daniel Martez Walker, 31, of Brooklyn Park, was arrested and jailed for 2nd-degree murder.
The shooting was reported just before 2 a.m. Friday near the intersection of Thomas Avenue North and Russel Avenue North.
Witnesses told police that both the victim and the suspect, later identified as Walker, were at a party playing a card game when the suspect pulled out a gun and shot the victim.
Police say they arrested Walker Friday evening after responding to a call of people using drugs at a home in the 8100 block of Zane Avenue North around 6:30 p.m. Arriving officers say they then recognized Walker and arrested him after he tried to escape through an apartment balcony.
Investigators say it is unclear what led to the shooting.
