St. Paul Bar Shooting Victim, Suspects ID’d

ST. PAUL (WCCO) — Police arrested four people after a double shooting outside a St. Paul bar that left one person dead and another injured.

The shooting happened at about 2 a.m. Wednesday at the corner of Rice Street and Manitoba Avenue West.

There had been a fight inside Born’s Bar and some people were asked to leave. Witnesses said there was yelling outside followed by gunshots. Neighbors said bullets hit nearby buildings.

“I felt the bullet hit the building, and that’s when I panicked,” said nearby resident Amina McDonald. “It really rattled my nerves just to hear them bouncing off the building. Because, if it would’ve hit a window, somebody inside the apartment complex would’ve gotten hurt.”

Witnesses also saw a car speeding away after the shootings.

Police officers found 26-year-old Trevell Glass dead at the scene. Another 28-year-old man was taken to Regions Hospital and is expected to survive.

Family members described Glass as a father of five who was engaged to be married soon.

Police spokesman John Keating said police tracked down a vehicle that reportedly left the scene and took four men into custody. Police credited witness descriptions with helping officers find that vehicle quickly.

One of the four men, 31-year-old Byron Brantley, was being held on suspicion of murder. The other three were being held for allegedly aiding Brantley. Their names are LeAndrews Miller, 27; David Keys, 24; and Xavier Buckhanan, 36.

Police said they haven’t ruled out the possibility that more may be involved and that more arrests may follow.

Neighbors WCCO talked with said violence is a regular occurrence in the neighborhood.

“They just get crazy when they get out of bars. They get crazy out here and they go nuts,” said another neighbor. “Every night, they’re fighting out here. Every night, they’re screaming and yelling and fighting. It goes on every day.”

    I know where it is because my dad doesn’t live too far from it. Its on Rice south of Front street, maybe two blocks from front. I know that bar has had many issues as well as a few others in that area. I am sure thats the next one to go, since Diva’s is closed for good because of all the trouble thats happened there.

  • red

    Close the dump. It has been nothing but trouble

  • Jim Beam

    Low IQ binge drinkers that lack conflict-resolution skills. Bartenders that over-serve. A barful of ugly personalities all converging. A perfect storm.

  • SeanSr.

    The most irritable thing is and not to undermind the young mans death but the nicer the weather we see the more of these accounts will grow….My prays to the five kids and the rest of his family for there loss.

    • SeanSr.

      ‘their” sorry for that,, And after reading some of the comments, Selena dear, ignore and don’t respond. For that is all they seek, ten to one it’s some person with little to no purpose in life at all. These responses give them just the slightest bit of purpose, for its all they have in the world. That is next to their lonley dwellings, daily paper, pc, and neighborhood pub. They feel safe in the box for it has no face and race really is no issue cause their eyes tremble just the same when the guy with the bandana and leathers drive by on his roaring hog not knowing its actually the CEO to some big company. Now please don’t miss read me ,not out to slander these gentlemen or ladies. I’m simply trying to play the mirror and give them a reflection of themselves.

      • selena wade

        Thank you for yur support & i dnot even know you .
        i really appreciate it ;)
