Charges filed in 2005 drive-by shooting case

Charges were filed against a Minneapolis man Friday in the case of a 2005 drive-by killing, reports the Star Tribune.
Artaives Brown, 24, was shot to death on Feb. 22 after an argument with Marcus Champs, 20, at a Roosevelt High School basketball game.
Both men left the school in their cars and Champs began to chase Brown. He caught up to him around 9 p.m. near E. 37th Street and Cedar Avenue S when Champs shot at Brown five times, the charges said.
Brown was driven to the hospital, where he died, by someone else in his car.
Police said he was a gang member at the time, but his mother denied it. Champs will be tried as an adult even though he was 17 at the time of the shooting.
