Two Charged in Fridley Homicide
ANOKA -- Authorities say a fatal shooting in Fridley happened after a drug purchase.
A criminal complaint filed in Anoka County charges two men with second-degree murder in the death of 54-year-old James Chapman last Saturday. The complaint says Chapman was shot once in the chest after selling some marijuana to 35-year-old Bryston Hill-Turnipseed. Authorities say Hill-Turnipseed left the house and returned with 44-year-old Johnny Edwards who shot Chapman.
Bail for Edwards was set at $1.5 million Wednesday while bail for Hill-Turnipseed is $1 million. The state public defender's office in Anoka says an attorney has not yet been assigned to Edwards. The Anoka County Attorney's Office said it had no attorney listed for Hill-Turnipseed.
