Three people have been charged over the shooting of six people at the Little Earth housing complex in Minneapolis on Wednesday.
On Friday, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman confirmed five 2nd degree assault charges have been brought against Rico King, 21, of Minneapolis, along with one count of 2nd degree riot.
Georgina Kellum, 35, of Crystal, was charged with aiding an offender-accomplice, while a warrant has been issued for Francisco Reyes, 21, also on assault and riot charges.
A fourth person, a 14-year-old boy, was wounded in the incident and prosecutors are weighing charges against him, as he was allegedly one of the main shooters in the incident along with King.
It follows chaotic scenes at the Little Earth of United Tribes-run complex in Ogema Place, south Minneapolis, with police arriving to find a crowd of 50 people, six of whom had been shot.
The injured parties in the shooting ranged from 14 to 46, who were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center with non-life-threatening wounds.
Concern over Little Earth violence
According to the criminal complaints, King and the 14-year-old boy were seen on surveillance footage shooting into a group of people hanging in Little Earth's parking lot.
It follows an argument that had broken out earlier in the evening.
Reyes, who was shot in the foot, was seen holding an assault-style weapon but never fired it.
Kellum is accused of trying to hide the gun used by the 14-year-old boy from police.
It's the latest in a flurry of violence in the Little Earth community, with Freeman noting it comes despite efforts from residents and police, "who have worked hard to get rid of the drugs and the violence."
"It’s tragic because this is a break from the successes they have had," he said. "What is a 14-year-old doing with a gun? Society has to do more to remove handguns from the streets. I call on the Minnesota Legislature to do more."
