Minneapolis Man Charged In Stabbing At Light-Rail Station
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Prosecutors say an argument near a Minneapolis light-rail station preceded the fatal stabbing of a homeless man over the weekend.
Hennepin County prosecutors on Wednesday charged 25-year-old Anthony Bowker of Minneapolis with second-degree murder.
Bowker is charged in the death of 58-year-old Gerald Davis of St. Paul.
County Attorney Mike Freeman says surveillance video captured what appeared to be an argument between a group of men and the victim about 15 minutes before Davis was stabbed Saturday.
Bowker was arrested early Monday at a homeless shelter in downtown Minneapolis. He remains in jail, with bail set at $2 million, and is scheduled to appear in court Thursday.
Freeman says despite the killing, light-rail travel remains safe in the Twin Cities.
