Man Pleads Guilty In Fatal Shooting At George Flood Square
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A 31-year-old Minneapolis man has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge for fatally shooting another man at the intersection where George Floyd died in police custody.
Shantaello Christianson pleaded guilty Monday to first-degree manslaughter and to being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Prosecutors say Christianson will be sentenced to 10 years as part of the guilty plea. Christianson admitted to killing 30-year-old Imez Wright outside Cup Foods on March 6.
Authorities say Wright was shot multiple times in the chest and hand.
The intersection became a makeshift memorial after Floyd's death and is now known as George Floyd Square.
