Man Arrested in St. Louis Park Charged with Murder

He's charged in connection with the death of a Minneapolis man who died from gunshot wounds on July 6.

A 22-year-old Robbinsdale man arrested on August 1 in St. Louis Park is accused of shooting a 21-year-old Minneapolis man to death.

Marlon Rashaad Robertson has been charged with one count of felony second-degree murder and two counts of felony attempted murder in the late June incident.

Around 7:30 p.m. on June 24, a man was shot multiple times on the 2100 block of of West Broadway in Minneapolis. He died on July 6 of the gunshot wounds.

A few days after the shooting, Robertson sold a handgun, telling the buyer that he knew it worked since he had recently "emptied it," according to a Minneapolis Police Department press release.

The ballistics on the handgun matched the bullets found in the murdered Minneapolis man.

Police said that "distinctive footwear" matching the description of the shooter's shoes given by witnesses was found in Robertson's home.

In a post-arrest interview, Robertson told police that a man standing near the murder victim was "a snitch."

Robertson is in custody in Hennepin County Jail.

Minneapolis unfortunately has earned its reputation as "Murderapolis." It's no different from Detroit, Chicago's South Side, and Newark... There is a direct correlation between Democrat-run cities and crime. That's why the left-wing Met Council must be stopped in its tracks! The Met Council wants, through liberal social engineering, to spread crime and poverty throughout the metropolitan area! They aren't satisfied that they have destroyed the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul.

If you are trying to make a legitimate argument, you are failing. Hyperbole just makes your claims easier to dismiss. You are a good and creative writer, but sensational claims only work on those who already agree with you and don't bother to do their own research.
