A drive-by shooting in Delano has resulted in attempted murder charges for a man from Howard Lake.
Joshua Moist, 34, is accused of shooting at a SUV that had pulled into the Stahlke Bus Service garage in the early hours of Tuesday morning, with at least one bullet striking a school bus parked inside the depot.
According to the criminal complaint, the target of the shooting was the driver of a Chevy Tahoe, who Moist believed to be responsible for the overdose death of his cousin.
The victim was in the process of turning around after noticing a car had been following since leaving a nearby Holiday gas station around 2:25 a.m.
But as he turned, a silver vehicle with a broken headlight passed him on the shoulder and as many as five shots were fired.
Bullets shattered the passenger side window of the Chevy, sending shards of glass into the victim's face.
One of the bullets struck the Stahlke garage door and hit a school bus inside, smashing a rear window.
Surveillance footage from a business adjacent to the scene captured the suspect vehicle on camera, from which police were able to identify it as belonging to Moist.
They found the car a short time later stuck in mud in the Rebecca Lake Park Reserve, with shell casings found in the windshield of the vehicle.
Police carried out surveillance of Moist's grandmother's home in Howard Lake, and watched him getting into a car with his aunt.
When they pulled the car over, they found a 9mm loaded handgun in the glovebox.
A witness told police that Moist told them he believed he'd figured out who had killed his cousin, who died of an overdose in June 2017, and that he was going to "take care of it."
Police told the Star Tribune there's been no link found between the victim and Moist's cousin's death.
