Owatonna Man Ruled Competent to Stand Trial For Murder
Minneapolis, MN (KROC-AM News) - An Owatonna man has been found competent to stand trial for the murder of a Minneapolis man.
A judge in Hennepin County issued the ruling today after reviewing the results of a psychological evaluation on 28-year-old Mubarak Musse. The testing was ordered shortly after he was charged with second-degree murder for the deadly shooting outside a Minneapolis market on March 15th.
The criminal complaint says the fatal shooting was recorded by a surveillance camera and followed an argument between Musse and the victim inside the Village Market. Prosecutors say the video shows the Owatonna man pulling out a handgun and firing multiple shots at the victim even after he fell to the ground. Investigators recovered 15 spent shell casings at the scene.
Musse is being held in the Hennepin County Jail on $1 million bail.
