St. Paul Man Fatally Shot
A St. Paul man was murdered early Saturday morning while trying to defend his cousin from an attempted robbery.
Jeffery Lamont Logan, 44, was shot outside the Attucks-Brooks American Legion Hall in St. Paul after he confronted three men who were accosting his cousin.
The police responded to calls from the American Legion and arrested the three suspects after a brief chase.
The (Minneapolis) Star Tribune reported the suspects as a 20-year-old man from West St Paul and two men, 27 and 28, from St. Paul. The three are being held in the Ramsey County jail and await formal charges.
Logan was a regular at the American Legion, and those who knew him said he was kind-hearted and always looked out for his friends and family.
Though he had no children, Logan treated his nieces and nephews as his own. He was the oldest of eight siblings and was close to his many cousins.
Logan's brother, Charles Walker Jr., described him as a "mother hen."
"He watched over everybody," Walker told the Saint Paul Pioneer Press.
Logan's death comes as the third in St. Paul this year.
