Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - An Owatonna man has been formally charged with a recent shooting at Graham Park in Rochester.

19-year-old Kelvin Armando Figueroa-Millan was arraigned Monday in Olmsted County Court on a second-degree assault charge and a felony count of reckless discharge of a firearm in connection with the September 2nd incident. His conditional bail was set at $20,000.

According to the criminal complaint, Rochester police were sent to the Olmsted County Fairgrounds to investigate a report of a shooting around 10 PM on September 2nd. The officers learned that a quinceanera party was taking place and that an altercation had occurred at Graham Arena 3.

The court document says witnesses told police they heard approximately three gunshots and the investigating officers found a bullet hole in the front bumper of a vehicle parked in the area and two bullet holes were found in the walls of a nearby barn. Three spent shell casings were eventually located in the area where the shooting was reported.

The officers were able to review a video of the altercation that led to the shooting. The criminal complaint says it shows a large group involved in an argument, including a man with a black fanny pack. At one point, the man is seen putting on a ski mask and reaching into the fanny pack, which prompts the crowd to scatter.

The charges say another man remained at the scene and continued talking to the man with the fanny pack until the shooter is seen raising his arm and three muzzle flashes were visible before the man runs out of sight. The court document notes the bullet hole that struck the vehicle was directly behind the other man who was running away from the gunfire.

The criminal complaint says investigators spoke with witnesses and eventually found a person who identified Figueroa-Millan as the suspect from photos obtained from the surveillance videos. Figueroa-Millan was apprehended during a traffic stop Friday morning and a search warrant was executed at the motel room where he had been staying in Rochester. The court records say the search led to the discovery of a black ski mask, a black fanny pack, and pants matching those seen worn by the shooting suspect in the surveillance video.

Figueroa-Millan is due back in court later this month.
