MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Three men have been charged in connection with a Sunday morning shooting that left a 30-year-old man in critical condition.

Twenty-five-year-old Leondis Marcel McAllister, Nisus Dealvin McAllister, 39, and 21-year-old Justin James Fineday were charged Tuesday for first-degree attempted murder and first-degree aggravated robbery.

Officers were initially called just after 12:30 a.m. Sunday to the 2500 block of 18th Avenue South for an assault. Upon arrival, they found a man unconscious in the alley with gunshot wounds to his torso and head. He was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center, where he remains in critical condition.

The three men were arrested after police say they matched the suspects’ descriptions and were located close to the scene of the shooting.

Investigators say through interviews conducted with the men, it was determined that all three were involved. Items belonging to the victim and a handgun of the same caliber used in the shooting were located in the area where the three men were initially found.

The men are currently in custody.

Anyone with additional information about this case is asked to call the TIPS Line at (612) 692-8477.

    Thugs brag about how tough they are when in reality they prey upon the weak and are too dumb to get away with their crimes. Now we get to pay for their trial and likely incarerations. One will snitch on the others without a doubt and cut a deal. They will come out as better educated criminals and victimize again. Why not have a deserted island to bring them to and leave them there forever?

      That’s a pretty generalized statement; yes some do go in and come out better criminals…the movie Blow would be a good example of this but some go in there and never commit another crime. About 60% of those release will re-offend…I think we need to implement more programs in the prison system in order to help rehabilitate these criminals before releasing them back into the community. I am a huge supporter of re-entry programs and rehab programs.

    Why does it seem that dang near every time a crime is reported it’s black people involved?
    I don’t get it

    Ultimately the African American community is going to have to be accountable for these statistics.
    How can those of other races read these statistics or experience the level of violent crime perpetrated by black males and not feel threatened whenever in the same vicinity?
    I, for one, do feel alarmed by the rising violent crime rates in the city and it is even more depressing when you see that over 90% of all violent crime is by black males.
    And our entire government local, state and federal is incredibly quiet about it.
    I am curious how these changes affect the lives of those living in these communities.
    Has the joy of going out in the evening become less pleasurable because of this?
    Are these violent crime statistics not really an issue for you at all?
    Do you still feel that there is no real “color” to violent crime and that “…people of all races commit violent crime…” and you give no thought to the incredible statistical imbalance regarding the racial component?
    And why doesn’t the African American Community go nuts over these numbers?
    How can they be blind to the fact that within their community comes nearly 90% of all violent offenders?
    I am a open minded and tolerant man but I would have to be a real moron or idiot to not recognize the reality of these statistics.
    Within the educated and thinking community am I all alone in seeing this?
