St. Paul Man Killed in Robbery

A 44-year-old St. Paul man died from a Saturday morning shooting near the Attucks-Brooks American Legion Hall when he tried to intervene with three robbers, reported the Star Tribune.

Jeffrey Lamont Logan was coming to the aid of his cousin, who was being robbed by three men, Logan's brother told the Pioneer Press. Logan was shot in the alley, and died at Regions Hospital in St. Paul.

The police briefly chased and then caught three men and placed them in the Ramsey County jail. It was the third homicide of the year in St. Paul.

The Star Tribune reported that many friends and relatives came to mourn Logan at the American Legion post on Saturday afternoon.

Members of the community were expressive of how considerate and self-sacrificing Logan had been throughout his life. He was a single man with a large extended family. He was born without a left hand, but played three sports at Highland Park high school, and attended St. Paul College. He had lived in St. Paul his entire life, the Pioneer Press reported.
