A 24-year-old Brooklyn Park man was jailed Tuesday morning in connection with the killing shortly after midnight Saturday of Cabrie D. Young, 28, at a home in the 3400 block of Dupont Avenue N.

Another 24-year-old man, from Minneapolis, was arrested Sunday evening in the death of Francesca M. DeSandre, 24, who was shot to death about 5 a.m. Saturday at her home in the 2600 block of N. 3rd Street.

Charges against both men are pending. Police have yet to explain the men’s alleged roles in the killings or other circumstances surrounding the deaths, but they did say more arrests are possible.

Young died at the scene, and two other men were wounded. He lived about six blocks from the shooting.

In the other case, in addition to DeSandre’s death, another woman was seriously wounded.
