A Brooklyn Center man was charged with murder after he allegedly followed a woman into a downtown Minneapolis parking garage and shot her in the back of the head over the weekend.

Otis T. Givens, 45, was charged in Hennepin County District Court with second-degree murder in the death of Ariana M. Bradley, who had no permanent address.

Givens was arrested Monday and remains jailed in lieu of $500,000 bail. His attorney declined to comment.

According to the complaint: Reported gunfire sent officers near S. 9th Street and LaSalle Avenue, where a man was shot in the leg in an alley and Bradley was dead in the garage. Based on video surveillance and witnesses, Givens allegedly shot Bradley after she argued with someone in the alley who was there with Givens.
