A man ran off with marijuana from inside a South St. Paul home, then soon turned around and fatally shot a man who was following him, according to charges filed Tuesday.
Anthony M. Fisher, 20, of Cambridge, Minn., was charged in Dakota County District Court with two counts of second-degree murder in connection with the shooting Friday of Avontae T. King, of South St. Paul in the 400 block of S. 3rd Avenue.
Also charged with the same counts was Tre M. Iglesias, 22, of St. Paul, who allegedly was at Fisher's side when King was shot.
Fisher remains jailed in lieu of $750,000 bail. Iglesias is being held in lieu of $500,000 bail. They are due back in court on Dec. 12. Both defendants have yet to arrange legal representation.
According to the criminal complaints:
While Fisher and Iglesias were in the home, Fisher took a bag of marijuana off a table and they both ran out. King went after them. Fisher shot King, and he and Iglesias drove off.
Iglesias soon contacted law enforcement and acknowledged his role and that Fisher was the one who shot King. Both men were arrested over the weekend and jailed.
