Man fatally shot outside Eagan hotel; suspect released from prison in May is arrested

A violent felon was jailed Tuesday on suspicion of fatally shooting a man outside an Eagan hotel.

The gunfire occurred shortly before 9 p.m. Monday at the Sonesta Suites, just off the Lone Oak Road exit of Interstate 35E, police said.

Officers arrived at the scene and found the victim on the grass on the south side of the hotel with several gunshot wounds, according to police and emergency dispatch audio. His identity has yet to be released.

Police soon stopped a car leaving the area and took a 29-year-old man and a 31-year-old woman into custody. The woman was later released.

The male suspect, who is from St. Paul, was released from prison in May after being sentenced in 2016 for illegal weapons possession. He has yet to be charged in Monday’s shooting. The Star Tribune generally does not identify suspects before they are charged.

Authorities have yet to say whether the victim and the gunman were acquainted before the shooting. Police also have yet to address a motive for the killing.

Anyone with information about this case is urged to call police at 651-675-5799.

Guest Describes Moments With Accused Suspect Before Deadly Shooting At Bricktown Hotel

A metro man said he and his wife talked to a woman hours before police said she shot a man to death at a Bricktown hotel.

Dustin Larsen and his family checked in Monday after the ice storm knocked out power to their home.

Tuesday, he and his wife met hotel guest Tyesha Long.

“My wife and her had struck up a conversation, they were talking, the kids were swimming, everyone was having a good time,” said Larsen.

After parting ways Larsen says he ran into Long later that night.

“I came down to go out back and have a cigarette. At that time, as I was walking back out the door, I could hear yelling,” said Larsen.

Larsen said Long was in a heated argument with a man.

“It was loud enough that I was inside, and I could still hear at least the yelling going on,” said Larsen. “When she walked back in, she literally said just “F” off! She threw her hand up, I moved, she went back in.”

Larsen went to his room but said he got up later.

“As I came back up the elevator, I was getting off and that’s when I heard pow, pow, pow, I heard three shots,” said Larsen.

Larsen shrugged it off and went back to bed.

“I thought we’re at the Hilton, it can’t be that” said Larsen.

But after waking up he said he realized something awful happened.

Police said a man was shot dead and his body was found in a hallway.

“God forbid if those bullets would have traveled south or any direction, it could have got someone else,” said Larsen.

Police arrested Long on a first-degree murder complaint.

“I was like oh my gosh, we talked, she talked to my wife…they were very friendly. She was very friendly,” said Larsen.               

Last November, according to court documents, Long was granted a protective order against her on-and-off again boyfriend.

The Oklahoma County District Attorney will decide if she will be charged or if she acted in self-defense.

Suspect named in killing of 4-year-old girl in New Orleans Central Business District hotel | Crime/Police

New Orleans police have obtained a warrant to arrest a man accused of killing his girlfriend’s 4-year-old daughter in a Central Business District hotel room earlier this month.

Anfernee Devante Steele, 21, faces one count of second-degree murder and cruelty to a juvenile in the slaying of Jo’nyri Hawkins, police announced Thursday.

A law enforcement source said Hawkins’ mother had left the girl in Steele’s care at a hotel in the 500 block of Canal Street for a few hours and returned to find the child unresponsive and limp early Oct. 3. The mother called 911, and first responders pronounced her dead. 

The Orleans Parish Coroner’s Office later ruled that Hawkins had died from blunt force injuries, and the agency classified her case as a homicide, the source said. 

Steele at one point allegedly claimed that Hawkins had a bad fall, according to the source. But the source said authorities concluded that the girl’s “severe bodily injuries” were not consistent with a fall and had resulted from physical abuse. 

Police obtained a warrant to arrest Steele on Tuesday. He was at large as of Thursday afternoon.

A second-degree murder conviction carries a mandatory life prison sentence. As of Thursday morning, Hawkins’ homicide was one of at least 151 that had been reported in New Orleans this year.  

An obituary for the child says she is from Houma. Her survivors include her parents, Joseph Hawkins and Amari Charles; two siblings; and her grandparents.

Hawkins’ funeral is scheduled for 11 a.m. Friday at Beautiful Zion Baptist Church in Houma.

Anyone with information on Steele’s whereabouts can call Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111. Tipsters may be eligible for a cash reward.
