Trial for man charged in connection to fatal shooting outside of school pushed to November

UPDATE 11:30 a.m. – A trial which was previously scheduled to begin Monday for a man allegedly connected to a fatal shooting outside of a Richfield school earlier this year has been pushed back.

Online court records show the trial for 20-year-old Alfredo Solis will now begin Nov. 28, more than a month after it was initially scheduled to start.

The new trial date is the same date as the trial for Fernando Valdez-Alvarez – the other man allegedly involved in the shooting – is scheduled to begin, according to records.

Solis is charged with one count of intentional second-degree murder and two counts of attempted second-degree murder. The shooting happened outside of the South Education Center in February, which killed 15-year-old Jahmari Rice and injured two other students.

Solis and Valdez-Alvarez then drove away from the scene. They were eventually arrested in Minneapolis.
