3 Men Charged In Fatal St. Paul Bar Shooting
ST. PAUL (WCCO) — Three men have been charged in connection to a bar shooting in St. Paul that left a 26-year-old man dead and another man wounded, according to the Ramsey County Attorney’s Office.
Byron Dean Brantley, 31, was charged with aiding and abetting intentional second-degree murder in the death of Trevell Glass, and aiding and abetting attempted intentional second-degree murder in the shooting of 28-year-old Ryan Davis.
Leandrews Cevale Miller, Jr., 27, was charged with aiding an offender, and aiding and abetting intentional second-degree murder in the death of Glass.
Xavier Jerome Buckhanan, 36, was charged with attempted intentional second-degree murder of Davis, as well as possession of a firearm by an ineligible person.
According to the complaint, the three men, all from St. Paul, were in Born’s Bar on 899 Rice St. on April 13, 2011 prior to the shooting. They were asked to leave after getting into a fight. Glass wasn’t involved in the initial altercation, but tried to break up the fight, according to a witness.
After leaving the bar, Glass was fatally shot by Brantley, the complaint said. Davis, who had been talking to Glass, was also shot and taken to Regions Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
“This incident was a senseless tragedy that has shaken our community. Thanks to quick work by the St. Paul Police Department, the men responsible are in custody and will be held accountable,” said Ramsey County Attorney John Choi.
All three men are from St. Paul.
