FRIDLEY, Minn. — Anoka County prosecutors on Tuesday, Jan. 15, charged two Fridley men in connection with Thursday’s fatal shooting of a Minneapolis teen.
The Anoka County attorney’s office announced that 24-year-old Travon Shug Wallace has been charged with second-degree murder and that 20-year-old Tamarr Brayon Long has been charged with aiding an offender. Both were being held in the Anoka County Jail.
They were arrested in connection with Thursday’s shooting death of 17-year-old Keimonte Raclaud White.
Fridley police officers responding to a call that a man had been shot around 5:53 p.m. on Jan. 10 spotted the injured White, who was transported to a Minneapolis where he died. Three bullets were removed from his body, according to the criminal complaint charging the suspects.
White had been with two friends in a van in Fridley to give someone a ride. Shortly after a man got into the van, the man started shooting at White, according to the complaint. The friends fled.
Wallace lives in the apartment near where the shooting happened. Investigators found clothing there that matched those described by witnesses, the complaint said.
A witness told investigators that later that night Long was describing the shooting and showed off the gun.
