Two Brooklyn Park men have been charged in connection to separate murder cases, the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office announced Tuesday.

Devon Manley, 28, is charged with five charges, including intentional second-degree murder and second-degree murder in a drive-by shooting, in connection to the death of Shanette Marable of Minneapolis in July 2020.

Glenn Smith, 59, is charged with second-degree murder in connection to the fatal shooting of Bobby Evans over the weekend. 

Both Smith and Manley are expected to make their first court appearances on Wednesday.

July fatal drive-by shooting

In the July 11, 2020, drive-by shooting incident, the driver of an SUV flagged down police when his passenger, 31-year-old Marable, was shot, the complaint said. Police checked for a pulse, but she was dead. 

Her 2-year-old in the back seat also suffered cuts and was covered in glass, charges state. 

According to the driver of the SUV, as many as nine shots were fired into the vehicle while it was stopped at 26th and Emerson Avenues North in Minneapolis, the complaint says.

Police used surveillance video to identify Manley as the driver who fired the shots, charges state. The driver of the SUV also identified Manley when shown the video. 

Manley is also charged with attempted second-degree murder and two counts of felony possession of a handgun.

Smith charged with killing his friend

On Saturday, Evans stopped by Smith’s home on the 3800 block of 83rd Avenue North in Brooklyn Park. Smith’s wife told police he and Evans were childhood friends.

According to the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office, the two began drinking heavily and eventually got into an argument. 

Smith’s wife tried to get Evans out of the house, but Smith emerged from the bedroom with a gun and shot Evans, the complaint said. Evans was dead when police arrived.

Smith told officers, "I shot him" and made comments about the amount of alcohol he drank, charges state.
