Vigil held for man shot, killed at St. Paul gas station
Family and friends gathered for a vigil Saturday afternoon to remember the victim of a deadly shooting in St. Paul.
Loved ones called for justice for 22-year-old Jarrid Neadeau-Lyons at the BP gas station on Suburban Avenue where he was shot.
According to a criminal complaint, on Thursday, Neadeau-Lyons hit 24-year-old Warsame Abdihoosh after he threatened to spit on his girfriend. Abdi-Hoosh then shot at Neadeau-Lyons, killing him.
At Saturday’s vigil, Toni Chevre, the victim’s fiancee, said the shooting unfolded right near their 13-month-old son.
"My 13-year-old son was 20 feet away when this happened. A bullet could have hit my son," Chevre said. "My son was walking around the house the night it happened, saying, ‘Dada,’ looking in every room, waiting for him to come. Jarrid has never been away from him ever."
Police say Abdihoosh turned himself in after the shooting. He is charged with two counts of second-degree murder.
