A shooting outside a Cub Foods in Coon Rapids left one young man dead and another in jail, authorities said.
The killing occurred at 4:35 p.m. Monday in the grocery store’s parking lot in the 2000 block of Northdale Boulevard, the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office said.
Emergency responders provided medical attention to 19-year-old Staveonte El Brown, of Coon Rapids, before declaring him dead, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Authorities have yet to offer a motive for the shooting.
A 19-year-old man from Andover was arrested minutes later near the scene by Coon Rapids police and taken to Mercy Hospital for treatment of minor injuries before being booked into jail.
The suspect has yet to be charged. The Star Tribune generally does not identify suspects before they are charged.
Court records in Minnesota show he was jailed in July and charged with a gross-misdemeanor drug offense in Wright County. He was released without having to post bail, has since pleaded guilty and awaits sentencing.
He’s also been convicted three times for petty misdemeanor drug crimes, all committed in the fall of 2019.
