Full Stop Gas & Food

A Minneapolis man has been convicted for what prosecutors described as a "brazen" shooting in broad daylight in 2019.

Johnnie Lamar Haynes, 33, was convicted by a federal jury of one count of possessing a firearm as a felon and one count of possessing ammunition as a felon., the U.S. Department of Justice announced Tuesday. He faces up to a ten year sentence on each count.

What happened

On Aug. 5 of 2019, Minneapolis responded to reports of a shooting at the Full Stop Gas & Food near Lowry Avenue and Logan Avenue North. Officers found 11 discharged shell casings at the scene.

According to trial evidence, surveillance footage later showed Haynes with two men inside the gas station. The two men then drove away from the gas station before circling back. Haynes shot at the vehicle as they drove off again.

A nearby business was struck by the gunfire, causing the employees inside to duck for cover.

“This defendant discharged a firearm near a busy intersection in broad daylight, showing total disregard for human life,” said Acting U.S. Attorney W. Anders Folk in a statement.

“This type of brazen gun violence is unacceptable in our communities and must be stopped."

Haynes had a prior felony conviction and is prohibited from possessing firearms or ammunition.

A federal judge will determine Haynes’ sentencing at a later date.
