Guilty Verdict for Rochester Home Invasion and Shooting
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) -- One of four men charged in a home invasion in Rochester that left the homeowner with a gunshot wound has been convicted by an Olmsted County Jury.
The panel found 33-year-old Dion Abrams guilty of all five felony charges against him, including first-degree aggravated robbery, first and second-degree assault, first-degree burglary and a firearms possession count.
The Minneapolis man, his two brothers, and a fourth man were charged in a violent incident that happened last July at a residence located near Gage School. They were accused of plotting to take marijuana from the homeowner, who had been growing pot in his residence. One of the men shot the homeowner in one his knees during the home invasion and then left with two jars of marijuana.
The man accused of the actually shooting is scheduled to appear in Olmsted Court later this month.
