ST. PAUL (WCCO) – Two 26-year-old men have been charged with second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of 28-year-old Joseph John Sanchez.

Nathan Nicholas Durick, of Minneapolis, and Nicholas Theodore Jackson (who also goes by the last name, Anderson), of St. Paul, will make their first court appearance Tuesday.

The two are accused of killing Sanchez on Nov. 9 in St. Paul, after becoming upset with him after a previous incident.

The criminal complaint states Durick and Jackson went to a house on the 1100 block of Payne Avenue on earlier this month when they saw Sanchez in an alley.

Durick told police both he and Jackson were armed and fired shots at Sanchez before fleeing the scene.

Police were called to the home and found Sanchez kneeling in the yard. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

“Such gun violence is disturbing and senseless,” said County Attorney Susan Gaertner in a release. “It has no place in our community.”
