Minneapolis police nab suspect in University of Minnesota shooting
Police arrested a north Minneapolis man Tuesday they suspect shot a University of Minnesota student during a near-campus crime spree in January.
The 21-year-old has yet to be charged, but Minneapolis police turned him over to the University Police Department for questioning yesterday, according to the Minnesota Daily. If the suspect is not charged within 36 hours, police will be forced to let him go.
From the Daily:
Police took the man into custody without a struggle at about 7 p.m. Tuesday in the front yard of his home on the 1500 block of Morgan Avenue North, according to the police report.
University police Chief Greg Hestness said the UMPD issued a warrant for the man's arrest after they determined probable cause. Minneapolis police then filled the warrant and picked up the suspect.
On Jan 25., police say two men in their early 20s robbed three people near campus. Soon after, 19-year-old Timothy Schumacher was shot in the chest outside of a residence hall. Schumacher has since been released from the hospital and is back in classes.
