Brooklyn Park Teen Charged in Halloween Homicide
A Brooklyn Park teenager is now facing felony charges after a double homicide on Halloween in Brooklyn Park.
Jaqual Sims-Miller, 16, was charged with two counts of aiding and abetting second-degree murder.
The charges come after two 16-year-old cousins were shot on Halloween night near 73rd and Zane avenues.
According to court documents, Muhumed and Sims-Miller exchanged threatening text messages hours before the shooting. Their argument was allegedly related to a missing firearm.
The shooting occurred less than a block from Sims-Miller’s place of residence. Investigators found shoe prints from the crime scene leading to his home.
Sims-Miller told police that Muhumed had left a gun at his house. He arranged to meet with Muhumed to exchange the gun.
Sims-Miller “explains that the meeting did not go according to plan and that during the meeting he pulled out his own gun and shot one of the victims,” according to court documents.
Meanwhile, according to a search warrant, Muhumed and Farah were suspects in the Oct. 30 shooting of 21-year-old Jaden Hollman in Minneapolis.
“It is further believed that Farah and Muhumed met up with Hollman at 4130 Humboldt Ave. N. and ended up shooting and robbing Hollman of his cell phone and two handguns,” the search warrant reads.
