A man whose handgun discharged while he was checking out at a Fridley Target store on Dec. 13 has been arrested and charged with a felony.

Seth Allan Millner, 28, was identified by a tipster after police released surveillance video to the media. He has no address listed in court records.

Millner said that he had the gun tucked in his waistband and that it went off as he was walking, according to court documents. He and a female companion are seen on surveillance footage rushing from the store and driving off in a red car.

Millner, who has prior burglary and gun possession convictions, was charged in Anoka County District Court with felony unlawful possession of a firearm by an ineligible person.

St. Paul police arrested Millner on Dec. 17 on suspicion of driving a stolen vehicle, drug possession and possession of a stolen handgun. He is being held in the Ramsey County jail on $100,000 bond for those St. Paul charges. Upon completion of that criminal case, he will be transferred to Anoka County.
