Charges Re-filed in 1998 Minneapolis Shooting
The Star Tribune reported that a prison inmate from Minneapolis was charged Friday in a 1998 homicide case.
Jaymichael Hargrove, 28, was charged in a shooting that year that resulted in the death of an 18-year-old Minneapolis man, but charges were later dismissed because of witness issues.
Hargrove was sentenced to prison in 2004 for committing a sex crime, and the murder case remained cold until a witness came forward in October saying Hargrove admitted to the crime.
Julius Gatson and his girlfriend were standing on a porch in the 3100 block of Chicago Ave. S. when Hargrove opened fire on them, killing Gatson and wounding the female according to the criminal complaint filed in Hennepin County District Court.
The Pioneer Press reported that since then, Hargrove has been convicted of three unrelated felonies, and four misdemeanors.
