Police have arrested two men for the murder of Shea Stremcha, a 25-year-old south Minneapolis man who was shot to death in his home early Wednesday morning.

Robert Shelby, 27, and Semaj Williams, 21, were arrested yesterday and are being held pending murder charges.

Police suspect that the murder might have been the result of a burglary gone wrong, with Stremcha possibly surprising Shelby and Williams as they broke into the house, but have not yet confirmed that scenario.

Stremcha had recently moved into the house with his fiancee, neighbors told the Star Tribune.

Police were called to Stremcha's house on the 2900 block of 45th Avenue South at 3 a.m. Wednesday. He was declared dead at the scene.

Police found and followed a trail of blood that led out the back door and down an alley, according to the Star Tribune.

Williams, the younger of the two suspects, was convicted of first-degree aggravated robbery in 2006.

Semaj is "James" spelled backward.

Don't ask, I don't know either.

 Further, I quote "[Semaj] Williams was convicted of first-degree aggravated robbery in 2006."So it was not his first mistake... I expect my government to protect me from people like this by getting them off the streets.

As a former coworker of Shea, I can say that anyone who took part in the shooting can never repay their debt to society. Shea was extremely hard-working and intelligent. He was a contributor to society, not a detractor. Yes, God will judge... but so will the law and I am very grateful these dangerous and ultimately useless people to society got their charges increased to first degree murder.

Terrell Smith,

Maybe you should learn a lesson from your friend: If you make bad decisions, eventually you will be in the wrong place at the wrong time and you will only have yourself to blame. Your friend made his bed--- are you in the process of making yours?
