Pair Charged in Connection With St. Paul Festival Shooting
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) _ Authorities say two men have been charged in connection with the fatal shooting during an event at a St. Paul park over the weekend.
Twenty-seven-year-old Nougai Xiong, of St. Paul, is charged in Ramsey County District Court with second-degree murder in the death of 19-year-old Jacky Vue, of St. Paul.
Twenty-eight-year-old Yang Xiong, of La Crosse, Wisconsin, is charged with aiding and abetting the shooting.
The shooting happened Sunday afternoon at the annual Hmong Freedom Festival at Como Park. Authorities say thousands were at the event.
Court documents show that a gang member who was involved in the fight told police that it occurred because the suspects were Asian Crips, and he and his group were Oroville Mono Boys.
The two suspects remained jailed.
