A 24 year old Faribault man has been charged with allegedly killing a 22 year old Faribault man at an Amazon Fulfillment Center in Lakeville Saturday.

Ahmed Ibrahim Cariif was pronounced deceased at the scene despite first aid efforts.  Mohamed Aden Hared told Dakota County dispatchers that he accidently shot his co-worker.

Lakeville police responded to the shooting around 4:00 a.m. Saturday.

According to the criminal complaint Hared was arrested at the scene after telling police that he, Cariif and a third man carpooled to work. Hared has a permit to carry but left his firearm in the third man's vehicle.

The complaint says Hared went to the car about 1:00 a.m. and saw that the handgun was still in the backseat but it's flashlight attachment was missing.  Cariif and the other man denied knowing about the missing attachment.

Cariif was reportedly angry about being accused of taking the flashlight attachment.

The three went out again around 4:00 a.m. to look for the attachment.  Hared said he had the gun in his waistband and, "politely asked for the attachment back," according to the complaint.

This led to two separate fights between Hared and Cariif, during which Hared fired two shots, hitting Cariif.

The third man said he saw Hared pull out the gun and yelled for him not to shoot.  He told police the first shot hit the vehicle and he saw Cariif fall to the ground after the second shot.

According to the criminal complaint, investigators found surveillance video of the shooting and saw that, "on multiple occasions, (Hared) had the ability to retreat.  Instead he engaged in the fight and the victim was shot and fell to the ground in the walkway."

The autopsy report shows injuries consistent with a fistfight on Cariif.  The gunshot wound hit his heart, lung and aorta.

Amazon officials said in a statement that they were "shocked and saddened by this terrible tragedy" and were cooperating with the investigation.
