Three arrested in connection with St. Paul shooting

St. Paul Police arrested three men early Saturday morning in connection with the murder of a St. Paul man, the Star Tribune reported.

Jeffrey Lamont Logan, 44, was shot and killed outside the Attucks-Brooks American Legion Hall after stepping in to defend his cousin – the initial victim of a botched robbery.

Charles Walker Jr., the victim’s brother, told the Pioneer Press his brother was doing what he always did – looking out for his friends and family.

“He watched out for everybody,? Walker said.

Walker told the Pioneer Press his brother “didn’t deserve to die the way he did,? and reiterated his comments to the Star Tribune.

"I know his death is going to impact this community pretty big," Walker said. "When a nice person goes out with his friends and this happens to him, it's not right.?

Police responded to the scene around 1 a.m. Saturday morning when they found Logan lying shot in an alley near the club at 976 Concordia Ave. After a brief chase, authorities apprehended three males, who await possible murder charges in Ramsey County jail.

The Pioneer Press listed the three suspects as Ronald Hill, 20, of West St. Paul; Elston Marc Williamson, 28, or St. Paul; and Henry Marcello Reed, 27, of St.Paul.
