Minneapolis man charged with murder in Loring Park shooting
A Minneapolis man is now wanted for murder in connection to a weekend shooting in the Loring Park neighborhood.
Drace Chaddell Jackson, 23, is charged with two counts of second-degree murder — one intentional, one unintentional — in connection to a shooting early Sunday morning that killed 34-year-old Malcolm Dewayne Andrews.
Minneapolis police were called to the area of Willow and West 14th streets at around 12:20 a.m. There, officers found Andrews on the curb, in a large pool of blood with several discharged cartridge casings around him. Andrews was pronounced dead at the scene.
Witnesses told police Andrews had been with two women earlier that night at a bar and returned to an apartment with one of them. Investigators also learned that Jackson, the brother of one of the women, occasionally stays at the apartment and was there that night.
According to a criminal complaint, surveillance video showed the entire incident and multiple witnesses confirmed Jackson as the man who was wearing a hoodie and was spotted chasing Andrews. The video also showed Jackson shooting a gun at Andrews, then firing additional shots while standing over Andrews before jogging back into the apartment.
As of Friday morning, Jackson was not yet in custody.
Andrews’ death was the city’s 38th homicide of the year, police say.
