A 34-year-old Brooklyn Park man has been charged, accused of fatally shooting a 32-year-old man near a gas station in south Minneapolis earlier this month.
Deandre Freeman was charged Friday in Hennepin County District Court with second-degree intentional murder in the death of Paris Love, of Minneapolis, on June 16.
The shooting happened at the Marathon gas station and Stop N Shop store gas station on the 1700 block of East Lake Street, with police saying at the time they didn't believe the shooting was random.
According to the criminal complaint, Freeman got out of a vehicle around 6 p.m. and walked up to Love, shooting him multiple times. He then got back in the vehicle and drove away.
Love, who was shot in the neck and back, died of multiple gunshot wounds at 6:17 p.m. on June 16, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office said.
Police spotted Freeman driving on Dunwoody Boulevard in the vehicle involved in the shooting, which had been reported stolen, on Wednesday, June 23, and arrested him.
The criminal complaint did not say why Freeman shot Love.
