Man Charged in Woman’s Fatal Shooting in Northern Minnesota
CASS LAKE, Minn. (AP) _ Prosecutors have charged a 24-year-old Cass Lake man
with murder in the fatal shooting of a woman in northern Minnesota last weekend.
Brandon Roy was charged Tuesday with second-degree murder, first-degree robbery and illegally possessing a firearm in the shooting of a 25-year-old woman Sunday in Cass Lake.
According to the complaint, Roy told officers that he and others were smoking methamphetamine and that a woman took money and drugs from a man. Roy said his gun went off while struggling for the weapon with the robbery victim.
The complaint said Roy's handgun was fired through a closed bathroom door and hit the victim in the ``middle of the forehead.'' She has not been identified.
Authorities are still searching for three other people in the killing.
