WAITE PARK, Minn. (AP) — Prosecutors have charged a St. Cloud man jailed in North Dakota with murder in a fatal shooting at an apartment in central Minnesota.
Twenty-year-old Desmond Ormandy Barzey was charged Monday in Stearns County with unintentional second-degree murder as well as assault and being a felon in possession of a handgun.
According to the complaint, Barzey entered an apartment in Waite Park, pointed a handgun and ordered people to empty their pockets.
One man threw a shirt at Barzey and began moving toward him when Barzey allegedly shot him in the chest.
The victim was pronounced dead at a St. Cloud hospital.
Barzey fled and was arrested after a police chase near Bismarck early Sunday.
Police recovered a handgun from the vehicle.
Barzey is being held in the Burleigh County Jail, awaiting extradition.
