Two men have been arrested in connection with a fatal shooting Saturday night in Fridley, authorities said.
Just before 9 p.m., Fridley police were called to the 1300 block of Osborne Road NE. on a report of shots fired, with one male victim inside the residence. When officers arrived, two male suspects had fled in a silver vehicle.
Officers found the victim, 54-year-old James Lamont Chapman of Minneapolis, dead inside the home.
Chapman was visiting one of the residents of the home but didn’t live there. One of the two suspects was an acquaintance of the home’s occupants, authorities said.
The two suspects were arrested in Minneapolis by the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office, Minneapolis police and the FBI Fugitive Task Force.
The Star Tribune does not generally name suspects who have not been charged, but public records show that one of the suspects has been convicted of first-, second- and third-degree assault, disorderly conduct, and first-degree criminal sexual conduct.
The Anoka County attorney’s office will review the case and make a decision about criminal charges.
