Minneapolis man charged in fatal shooting outside tobacco shop still at large
A Minneapolis man has been charged via a warrant in connection with a fatal shooting that happened on Saturday. He is still at large as of Tuesday afternoon and his whereabouts are unknown.
Myshun Steven Cason Logan, 35, is facing second-degree murder charges in the shooting death of 36-year-old Roland Chalmous Hopewell. The victim died of multiple gunshot wounds just outside GM Tobacco on Minnehaha Avenue in Minneapolis.
According to the criminal complaint, around 6:49 p.m. Saturday, officers with the Minneapolis Police Department were dispatched to a shooting in the tobacco shop. When police arrived at the scene, they found Hopewell lying on the ground, unresponsive, with multiple gunshot wounds. He was immediately transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
A woman who was with Hopewell at the time was interviewed by police. She stated that the victim is her boyfriend and she is currently pregnant with the victim’s child. The victim, the woman and her infant child were leaving the store when the incident occurred. The victim and woman were walking with the child in a stroller when the woman’s ex-boyfriend, identified as Logan, pulled up in a red Kia Sorento. The suspect is identified to be the child’s father.
Surveillance video confirmed the incident, as investigators witnessed Logan getting out of his car and threatening the couple. He then pulled out a semi-automatic handgun and fired the weapon multiple times, hitting the victim. He then fled the scene.
According to the woman, about two weeks prior, Logan had allegedly assaulted Hopewell and threatened "to get a gun and kill" Hopewell and the woman. A text message on the woman’s phone confirmed the threat made.
Police confirmed the vehicle belongs to Logan. His whereabouts are unknown at this time, however, police say his last known location was in Illinois.
