Guilty Plea For Minneapolis Teenager’s Murder
Minneapolis, MN (KROC-AM News) - A Minneapolis man has entered into a plea agreement involving the murder of a teenager that calls for an over 30-year prison sentence.
The Hennepin County Attorney's Office says 21-year-old Andre Owens pleaded guilty to a second-degree murder charge during a court hearing on Wednesday and admitted he took part in a shooting last July that killed 16-year-old Quayshun Felton. The police reports concerning the incident indicate the officers who responded to reports of a shooting found him the victim lying in the street with a gunshot wound to his head.
Investigators were able to identify Owens as one of the suspects in the case through a video recorded by a dashcam in a car parked the street near the shooting. A friend who was with the teenager at the time of the shooting also positively identified Owens through a Facebook post and his jail booking photo.
Owens is scheduled to be sentenced on February 18th.
