Authorities have arrested and indicted a man in connection with a gang-related murder that happened in Roseville more than two years ago

However, additional suspects are apparently still at large. 

On Wednesday, 33-year-old St. Paul resident Perry Earl Williams III was officially charged in the homicide of Dondi Antwan Nalls, who was gunned down outside a Roseville apartment complex on September 23, 2017.

Shortly after the shooting, Nalls, 35, was found unconscious by first responders and died at the scene.

According to a news release from the Roseville Police Department, a grand jury indicted Williams on four counts:

  • Crime for gang benefit aiding and abetting first degree premeditated murder
  • Aiding and abetting first degree premeditated murder
  • Crime for gang benefit aiding and abetting second degree intentional murder
  • Aiding and abetting second degree intentional murder

The department says the indictment is the result of a two-year investigation involving multiple law enforcement agencies. 

Few details about the case have been released, and the exact nature of Williams's role in the murder is not yet clear.

The investigation is still active, and anyone with additional information about this case is urged to call Roseville police at 651-792-7008 or submit an anonymous tip on the city's website.
