A 30-year-old Fridley man has been arrested in last week's fatal shooting of a man outside a popular neighborhood bar in northeast Minneapolis, police said Friday.
Dejonte Antwon Davis, of Fridley, was arrested in Iowa on a warrant charging him with second-degree murder with intent in the death of Robert Urman, according to a criminal complaint filed in Hennepin County District Court.
Urman, 36, of St. Paul, was gunned down sometime after midnight on March 7 outside Northeast Palace, a well-known bar at 2500 NE. 4th St.
Surveillance video and witness accounts say a fight between the two men inside the bar eventually spilled outside, moments before the shooting occurred. Urman, police say, was shot six times, including once in the heart.
The father of five later died at Hennepin County Medical Center.
Family members described Urman as a loving father who enjoyed music, car shows and raising pit bulls.
His death marked the second homicide of the year.
The first homicide victim of the year was Ricardo Orozco Negrete, whose body was found bound and gagged in his south Minneapolis apartment on New Year’s Day. An autopsy showed he died of asphyxiation.
