A northwest Minnesota man has been charged with murder after shooting a woman who had come to his house as a favor on New Year's Day. 

Angelo O. Borreson, 56, of rural Badger, is accused of shooting the woman after she told him to "hurry up," according to a criminal complaint that details the 2nd-degree murder charge Borreson is facing in Roseau County District Court. 

The deadly incident happened Jan. 1 on the 27800 block of County Road 4 near the City of Badger, with Borreson calling 911 and telling police that he "had shot her." The victim has been identified as 51-year-old Angela M. Wynne. 

Wynne, according to the criminal complaint, had agreed to pick Borreson up at his home to help him get gas for his vehicle so he could get to work. She arrived at Borreson's house on New Year's Day morning, with Borreson telling investigators that Wynne was yelling at him to hurry up. 

Borreson wasn't ready to leave, which he said prompted Wynne to go out to her minivan and begin honking the horn and yelling at him. Borreson said he grabbed a 12-gauge shotgun, walked outside and pointed it at her because he wanted her off his property.

Borreson explained to police that the shotgun "fired three shots in succession," but he didn't know how the gun discharged. As he shot, the minivan went in reverse before coming to a stop in a field. 

Wynne was found dead inside the still-running minivan. She died of multiple gunshot wounds, having suffered traumatic injuries to her left shoulder and left side of her head. 

The next day, Borreson admitted to shooting Wynne, saying he had grown tired of her yelling at him. The complaint quotes Borreson as explaining that he told her to “get out of here... and I don’t know...the gun went off.”

After pulling the trigger, Borreson said he walked inside his house, put the gun in its case and called 911.
