An 18-year-old St. Paul man was charged Thursday in the shooting of four people last week in the Frogtown neighborhood of St. Paul, the Pioneer Press reported.

Jonathan J. Corbett was charged with attempted second-degree murder and two counts of second-degree assault Thursday in the Ramsey Country District Court, the Star Tribune reported.

According to the complaint, a woman and her two children went to a home in the 500 block of Thomas Avenue last Friday when Carl Antonio Wilks began to badmouth her friend and threatened to kill her, the Pioneer Press reported.

After the woman's 8-year-old left to get help and her fiancé came outside, Wilks and Corbett pointed guns at the couple. The woman was then allowed to leave with her child, the Pioneer Press reported.

Later that evening Wilks showed up to another home on the 500 block of Thomas Avenue and was asked to leave. Wilks left with a man from the house because he was not welcome at the get together, the pioneer press reported.

After they had left the house, Corbett started to fire a handgun, severely wounding three people while a fourth was grazed and did not seek medical attention, the Star Tribune reported.
