Brooklyn Park Shooting Victim ID’d as Former Park Center Student
Family identified Friday’s Brooklyn Park shooting victim as Syoka Siko.
Police say Siko and another 17-year-old were shot at an apartment complex, then located in a vehicle on an exit ramp in north Minneapolis.
Siko played on the Park Center basketball team last year.
According to the family, Syoka Siko, is also known as “SK.” Family say Siko had a 3.6 GPA and recently left Park Center High School to attend another school in the area. The Osseo School District says Siko was currently not enrolled as a student.
Last year’s Park Center basketball roster lists Siko as a junior.
Police arrested a 17-year-old in connection with the shooting, but he has been released pending charges.
The family has a GoFundMe set up to help pay for funeral expenses.
