The two men arrested in connection to a fatal shooting that occurred last Thursday in Fridley have each been charged.
Court records show 24-year-old Travon Shug Wallace of Fridley is charged with second-degree murder while 20-year-old Tamarr Brayon Long is charged with aiding an offender.
The pair made their first appearance in Anoka County court Tuesday.
Officers were called around 5:45 p.m. last Thursday to 61st Avenue Northeast and Fifth Street Northeast on the report of a shooting.
Authorities said 18-year-old Keimonte Raclaud White was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
According to the criminal complaint, two adult males who know White were interviewed and said he had been contacted to provide a ride to an unknown individual for a fee. When White and the two friends arrived in a minivan to provide the ride, an unknown male was said to have entered the back of the van where White was.
He then reportedly proceeded to shoot White multiple times.
Another woman said she was sitting in a minivan near the scene with her boyfriend, identified as Long. She said she saw him leave the car with a handgun, enter a residence, and come back without it. Then she saw another man go into the home. At that point, she said Long again exited the car, returned to the residence, and retrieved the gun.
Another witness who met Long later on that night said he showed him a gun, and said it had been used in a shooting in Fridley. He said his cousin was the one who did the shooting.
Long's cousin is identified in the complaint as Wallace.
