Argument resulted in death of an Augsburg student

The Star Tribune reported Monday that a simple argument was the cause of a shooting that occurred on September 22.
Police said that a juvenile, Ramadan Abdi Shiekh Osman, has been charged with the killing of Ahmednur Ali .
Ali had been volunteering at a community center that day, but witnesses said they saw him arguing with a group of young Somalis earlier in the day.
Witnesses said that Osman and Ali argued, then Osman hit Ali in the head with his gun before shooting him in the head and killing him.
Osman is 16 years old, but prosecutors hope he will be tried as an adult.
Osman may have been involved with a gang, police said.
Osman also lied to police about his whereabouts during the time of the shooting. He said he was with a relative, who later denied that.
Witnesses did not come forward immediately because they feared for their safety.
Several other shootings in the area may be connected to this one, police said.
