Rosemount police have arrested a 31-year-old man in connection with a fatal shooting outside a Burnsville bar and grill early Sunday morning and are now searching for a missing woman last seen with him that night.
Police arrested the man on Tuesday, but he has not yet been charged in connection with the shooting death of 23-year-old Palagor Obang Jobi, of Savage.
Burnsville police said the shooting followed a verbal altercation shortly before 2 a.m. in the parking of Nina’s Grill in Burnsville. Jobi, who was reportedly shot in the head, was dead when police arrived.
A day later, Anarae Kristine Schunk, a 20-year-old Burnsville woman and a University of Minnesota student, was reported missing.
