A Minor is Arrested in St. Paul Bus Killing

A 17-year-old was arrested Sunday on charges of homicide occurring on a route 74 bus in downtown St. Paul.

The family of Jerome Pablo Cross doesn’t believe the allegations. According to the Pioneer Press, James Cross said he last saw his son talking to friends outside the family's home about 11:45 p.m. Saturday. The killing occurred early Sunday morning, officials said.

Earl Freeman, the 16-year-old victim, was apparently not a random target, according to the Star Tribune.

St. Paul police are convinced that Jerome committed the act of murder.

"It's very clear from the photos that we have the right person," said St. Paul police spokesman Tom Walsh.
