Man Charged In Murder Of Marine

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 24-year-old Minneapolis man was indicted for first-degree murder by a Hennepin County Grand Jury on Thursday in connection with the 2005 death of former U.S. Marine Richmond Eric Dunbar.

Kendrick Tramaine Belyeu was also charged with seven other counts in connection with that shooting death. Those counts include first and second-degree murder for the benefit of a gang, attempted first and second-degree murder for a second victim who survived the shooting, according to the complaint.

The complaint, which was filed in April, states that Dundbar and a friend had parked their car and were walking to a house in the 3700 block of Oakland Ave. S. in Minneapolis to attend a barbecue on April 10, 2005. Shots were fired from across the street, and Dunbar was shot in the head and later died at Hennepin County Medical Center.

Dunbar and his friend were the victim of gang violence, the complaint states. According to the complaint, members of the Bloods gang tried to go to the barbecue but were told they weren’t welcome and were turned away. Because the house was considered to be in Bloods territory, those gang members retaliated. Witnesses at the scene, the complaint states, identified Belyeu as one of the shooters.

Belyeu is being held in the Hennepin County Jail on $2 million bail and is scheduled to make his first court appearance on Friday.

    “Shots were fired from across the street..” This is typical cowardly violence by people who profess to be tough, yet are so grotesquely yellow that they can’t face someone with whom they have an issue. As a taxpayer, I am fully committed to long periods of incarceration of these malcontents and pantiwastes; eventually even the most ignorant of their members (and that has to be a long list) will get the message that Minnesota will not be a haven for gangs. Peace.
