MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A 28-year-old Hopkins man is accused of shooting and killing Guled Hashi Mohamed, according to charges filed Friday in Hennepin County District Court.

Biyamin Beiti Omar was charged with second-degree murder in connection with the incident, according to a criminal complaint.

The criminal complaint states Mohamed was the passenger in a car at about 11:20 p.m. on May 29 that was parked near a bar at 18th and Nicollet Avenues in Minneapolis.

A witness saw two men approach the car, the driver drove off and the two men chased the car. The driver eventually stopped, and Mohamed got out of the car and said to the two men “You know me. Why are you following me?”

Mohamed got back in the car, and a third man proceeded to run toward the car, firing gunshots toward the back of the car two or three times. The complaint states the driver drove off.

Mohamed suffered a gunshot wound to his right temple and died Monday at Hennepin County Medical Center.

Omar told police he was in the area at the time of the shooting but denied being involved, according to the complaint. He said he tried to run into the bar after the shooting with two other males and didn’t observe anyone shooting or anyone with a gun.

If convicted, Omar faces up to 40 years in prison.

Mohamed was one of six people shot in the Twin Cities between Sunday night and Monday morning. The incidents remain under investigation.

    Maybe they should have run out of this country… back wheer they belong!

      Aren’t you late for a klan meeting? I hear it’s arts and crafts day.

      @mpls sux — There is a group of Native Americans saying the SAME THING to you right now.

      1. markH says:

        Fortunately (or unfortunately; depending on how you look at the facts) for us, white European settlers were successful in conquering the native Americans on this land, or else we’d all be living in a much different country. I am not condoning the massacres that took place (on both sides, I might add), but it is the height of ignorance to suggest that our domination of another culture in pursuit of lands (and by extension sustenance, economic expansion, and lands in which to grow was immoral. Many, many lands have been conquered throughout history and we do not berate those who now occupy such countries. For some reason, liberal America is forever beating itself over the very actions that allow it to live and flourish now. Go figure…

  2. Brian says:

    This is sad, but it is also isolated behavior and not indicative of Mpls in general. Comments from people like “mpls sux” aren’t helping either. You don’t curtail violence by being hateful towards an ethnic group. You do it by accepting them and working together with them to get rid of the bad apples, not the whole group.

    As a side note, there are pleeeenty of bad apples in the caucasian community – “@mpls sux.” For instance, the fatal stabbing in Chaska last night…

      OK genius Brian……if you want to be so loving and accpeting….put your effin money where you mouth is.

      Talk a walk in the Fairview-Riverside area tonight by yourself.

      Thats the problem with you effin, idealist hippies….you have the “solutions” but you refuse to walk the walk.

      I say you curtail the violence by being hateful and forcing them to leave the state. Both of suggestions solve the problem of Somali violenc here in the twin cities…..its just that mine would actually be effective.

    2. I dont know dude says:

      Crime, including murder is not an “isolated behavior” in the somali community. Check your facts. Hows the crime rate in the Fairview-Riverside neighborhood doing lately? Do you even know what you are talking about?

      Here is a Quiz for you: What percentage of Somali males, ages 18-25 are unemployeed? First correct answer gets the prize (hint: its more than 80%)

  3. me says:

    If you commit a crime….you’re in JAIL period.

  4. tom says:

    get a rope and a tree, quit being a liberal and lets bring back the death penalty.

  5. Cracker Jack says:

    Clueless head-in-the-sand Liberals love to embrace the worst of the worst,as long as the criminal is “ethnically diverse”..Maybe they need to be victimized a time or two & see how that Liberal Diversity holds up then!

  6. allan says:

    Another black man charged with murder. What a shock. Maybe more tomorrow.

  7. Enough says:

    Somali on Somali crime???? No way!!!! Are you kidding me??? And they seemed like such nice people as they drug the bodies of burned soldiers around Somalia…….who would have thought……I wonder why nearly all of Europe has stopped African immigration? Hmmmmmmm….those silly Europeans are so racist……

  8. idiocracy says:

    Thankfully Minneapolis’ murder count isn’t going up on this one… It was committed by someone from Hopkins. The number of murders is only for resident on resident murders. (lame attempt at a joke about Minneapolis’ classification of crimes; how they make themselves look safe on paper)

  9. Tom Minnesota says:

    its so naive and stupid to believe that these muslims will integrate and be part of the community. Multiculturalism DOES NOT WORK! Its failed in Europe, German, French, Dutch governments admitted it. Now they have a problem, millions of untamed muslims, its a time bomb We have to stop letting them in and deport those already here before its too late.

  10. limonade +whisky= ? says:

    looooooooooool is there any native indian here or just some other pple teling the somalis go back it s funnyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy love this

  11. limonade+whisky=? says:

    ta ta TOMY BOY muslims didnt killed 83.000 000. woman and childrens native americans but i wonder who did it ? huh huh ?

    1. pat says:

      Oh grow up limonade, the past is the past and there isn’t one person alive who committed the atroscity you speak of. Oh how great to glom on to victimhood. We are dealing with the realithy of today and the Somallis refuse to assimilate so they can leave. I wonder if the american indians want to give up their big pickup trucks, welfare, modern medicine all to go back to living in a tee pee and killing the neighboring tribe?

  13. Bryson Powers says:

    I know a lot of Somalis. Most of them are quiet and decent people. It’s not popular to hate Jews any more so I guess idiot bigots have to find some other group.

  14. Mr Somali says:

    I think Was wrong when I decided to come to this nations, i realized that I will no longer be In this Country especiallly, this States because of these constant discriminations and haressment. I am about to finish my school and move out….I have neve been disrespect by someone because of my color, religion, and race, but in MN I have seen all these….AND I PROMISED THAT MY KIDS WILL NEVER SEE MN OR U.S.A….

    1. tuna-free dolphin says:

      Thank you sir. Need a lift to the airport? I’ll rent a bus and we can bring your relatives too. Since MN is one of the most liberal states in the union, you’re not likely to feel more welcome anywhere else. Go on back to the land where sewage flows in the streets and boys carry machetes. That’ll be a great spot to raise your kids. Good luck with all that. Don’t let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya!

    2. Allah Loves Tasty Virgins says:

      You need a bullet let me know…I have a few laying around….how many in your family>??

  15. tuna-free dolphin says:

    You’re about to finish your schooling? Hope you’re not an English major. Need a lift to the airport. I’m here to help. Bring some of your friends. I’ll rent a bus.
