St. Cloud Man Pleads Guilty to Shooting that Wounded Three People
ST. CLOUD -- A St. Cloud man with a lengthy criminal history has pleaded guilty to an April shooting that wounded three people in west St. Cloud. Twenty-five-year-old Ali Omar also known as "Trigger Ali" pleaded guilty to two counts of felony 2nd-degree assault with a gun.
Police were called to the 3000 block of St. Germain Street West on a report of multiple gunshots on April 26th.
Witnesses told officers that Omar had gotten into an argument with a former friend, pulled out a handgun and fired several shots at the man's legs. Court records show another man and a teenager came out of an apartment unit to investigate and were struck by stray bullets.
The two adult victims were ultimately stopped by police in downtown St. Cloud as they were headed to the hospital for treatment.
Omar will be sentenced on December 12th.
