The man didn’t pull the trigger, but was found guilty for his role in the crimes.

A Ramsey County jury on Tuesday night delivered guilty verdicts on all counts against Yia Her in connection with the fatal shooting of a St. Paul bar owner as well as injuries to two other men after a dispute over $20 last June.

Her, 27, of Oakdale, was found guilty of two counts of attempted murder as well as aiding and abetting the shooting death of Vone Xweet Moua, owner of Malina’s Bar, 691 N. Dale St.

Her didn’t pull the trigger. Cheng Vang, 23, of Minneapolis, testified on Feb. 18 that he was the shooter. He pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and two counts of second-degree attempted murder.

Vang’s sentencing is scheduled for April 7. Hers will be set later this week.
