A Minnesota man is accused of fatally shooting a woman who yelled at him to hurry up and honked her horn while waiting for him outside his home.

Fifty-six-year-old Angelo Borreson was charged Friday with second-degree murder and second-degree assault in the death of 51-year-old Angela Wynne.


Borreson told authorities Wynne drove to his home near Badger in northern Minnesota on Wednesday morning.

According to a criminal complaint, Borreson said he accidentally shot Wynne after she started yelling at him to hurry.

Investigators found Wynne dead in her vehicle with the driver's side and passenger's side windows broken out and traumatic injuries to Wynne's shoulder and head.

The complaint also states three spent shotgun shells were found at the scene.

In an interview with investigators, Borreson said he had texted Wynne the day before and asked her to pick him up so he could buy gas for his vehicle. After she arrived the next morning she yelled at him to hurry and honked the horn, but he wasn't ready so he grabbed his loaded shotgun he keeps near the entryway of his home. He then pointed the gun at her because he decided he wanted her to leave, and it fired three times. The complaint states he told authorities he didn't mean for it to fire.
