Two more men have been charged in the May killing of Brock C. Larson during an apparent marijuana deal in St. Paul.
Ryan S. Fore, 26, of Minneapolis, and Edward L. Williams, 20, of St. Paul were each charged Monday in Ramsey County District Court with aiding and abetting second-degree murder with intent and aiding and abetting second-degree murder without intent.
Gabriel R. Kimbrough, 23, of St. Paul, was charged in May with one count of aiding and abetting second-degree murder without intent for his alleged role.
Larson, 36, was shot about 10:30 p.m. May 9 on the 300 block of Burgess Street and died about 1:27 a.m. the next day from multiple gunshot wounds.
According to the charges: Earlier in the day, a woman brought Kimbrough and Fore to Larson's Minneapolis home, where they bought some marijuana from Larson and smoked it. Kimbrough called someone, said the marijuana was good and later set up a sale.
Williams allegedly told police that Kimbrough set up Larson, that Fore was supposed to commit the robbery and others were supposed to grab 3 pounds of marijuana from Larson. Williams said Kimbrough dropped off him and Fore near the shooting scene.
Williams and Fore walked to the backyard of a home, where Williams listened to a police scanner on a phone. Larson came around the back of the home after Kimbrough told him that the buyer wanted to meet him alone inside.
Fore ordered Larson to " 'Give all that [expletive] up,' " and Larson turned as if he were reaching for a firearm, Williams allegedly told police. Fore fired at Larson, Williams said, and the group fled.
Williams' cellphone was found at the scene. DNA from the suspected murder weapon, which was recovered elsewhere, matched Fore and none of the other suspects, the charges said.
