Man sentenced for lying to police after 2020 Brooklyn Park shooting results in toddler’s death

A man has been sentenced to probation and time at a workhouse for lying to police after a shooting killed a toddler in Brooklyn Park in 2020.

Keyshawn Lemont Cosey-Gray, 22, was sentenced to a year at the Hennepin County Workhouse and three years of supervised probation. He pleaded guilty to aiding an offender back in February.

Brooklyn Park police were called to an apartment on Aug. 13, 2020, on a report that a 2-year-old had been shot. There, officers found the boy had been shot in the abdomen and attempted lifesaving measures before paramedics took the child to a hospital. However, the boy died two days later.

Two other people are also charged in the case.

Sherrillyn Kay Mosley, 58, is also charged with aiding an offender after the fact. A trial for her is set to begin on April 25.

Police still haven’t been able to find and arrest 21-year-old O’Sheonia Nypre Hodges, who’s charged via warrant with second-degree manslaughter.

A criminal complaint says Cosey-Gray and Mosley lied to police and tried to blame the shooting on someone other than Hodges after it happened. However, it’s still unclear what happened leading up to the gunshot.
