According to the criminal complaint, surveillance video from the area showed the victim walking towards a vehicle. The suspect was seen getting out of the passenger side of the car and approached the victim behind the vehicle. The victim was then seen falling to the ground. The suspect then ran back to the passenger seat and the car drove away from the scene.

Investigators were able to identify the driver of the vehicle. According to the county attorney’s office, the driver told police that Maddox had shot the victim.

Maddox was later arrested in downtown Minneapolis.

Maddox initially denied shooting the victim, however, he later admitted to the shooting after being shown the surveillance footage.

According to the complaint, Maddox told police he was a crack dealer and had given the victim crack. He also said there was some residual animosity between him and the victim because she had stolen around $400 from him the month before.

Maddox said he was drunk at the time and did not mean to shoot the woman.
