5 Charged After Gang Brawl Ignites Shootings

BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. (WCCO) – Five juveniles were charged Friday by the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office in connection with two melees that involved rival gang members on Aug. 13 and Aug. 14.

Trejan Samuel Tyson, 17 of Brooklyn Park, was charged with second-degree assault, five other assault counts and one count of certain persons not to have pistols.

Devantae Rashad Johnson, 17 of Brooklyn Center, was charged with second-degree assault with a criminal gang, second-degree assault and second-degree riot in association with a gang.

Keith Cornell Oliver, 17 of Brooklyn Center, was charged with second-degree riot in association with a gang, second-degree riot and certain persons not to have pistols.

Tywon Thyestes Beasley, 16 of Minneapolis, was charged with second-degree riot in association with a gang and second-degree riot. A 14-year-old boy was also charged with riot in association with a gang and another count of rioting.

According to court documents, the juveniles are all members of the Savage Squad gang. On Aug. 13, a group from that gang met at the Earle Brown Elementary School in Brooklyn Center. Johnson showed the group there a .38-caliber revolver and told everyone there it was the “gang’s gun.”

At about 8:30 that night, Brooklyn Center Police were called to the Georgetown Apartments on the 800 block of 66th Avenue North on a report of a large fight and shots fired on the complex’s playground. When authorities arrived, they learned that more than a half dozen Savage Squad gang members went to the apartments, knowing it was the territory of a rival gang, according to court documents.

A fight ensued and during the fight, Johnson fired several shots before the group fled the scene.

Around midnight, several of the Savage Squad gang members were at a house party on the 7600 block of Brunswick Avenue North when they heard members of the rival gang were coming to the party, according to court documents.

Tyson fired several shots, striking three people who suffered minor injuries. Police later recovered the gun. All five juveniles are still in jail pending whether they will be tried as juveniles or adults in the case.

    they ALL belong incarcerated until they are 34 years old…..their parents ALL need to be held accountable and be incarcerated as well for a meaningful term……these are the products of a welfare system that encourages laziness and no accountability……THIS is what the liberal free spending and generous welfare payouts to able bodied adults spawns.

    1. Albert says:

      I couldn’t have said it better. The sad thing is that although the state government shut-down partially achieved its objective of cutting back on wasteful spending, social welfare, food stamps, title 8 housing was mostly left untouched. What a shame!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. G.Young says:

    I couldn’t have said it better myself. Wake up Minnescrotum.

  3. Captobvious says:

    Kinda hard to hold the fathers responsible when you have no idea who they even are, these kids with stupid names are the product of stray animal breeding, to collect more welfare.

  4. More welfare please says:

    Tywon Thyestes? WTH?

    1. me says:

      “If you have 10 million monkeys type on 10 million typewriters they will eventually recreate the works of shakespear” – NOT!

      But they will come up with idiot names for their halfwitted offspring.

    2. Gary says:

      Let me guess: Trejan, Devantae and Tywon all mean “African King” in whatever nonsense language they come from.

      Lock ’em up, toss the key, safer streets.

    3. Zaida Henry says:

      Umm I happen to know and love this “Tywon Thyestes” very much, based upon their names they are less than anyone else? No, i didnt think so. First off as a teenager in any atmosphere it is very easy to be drug down the wrong path. For some it takes an extreme wake up call. This may be theirs… Why keep dragging them down with your rude and unnessarry comments, instead pray they change and want to make a change in their own lives. Thx

  5. Jake says:

    The ‘savage squad gang’? Are you effing kidding me? Only in crooklyn park could this happen. Even Mpls gangs aren’t THIS STUPID.

  6. Victoria Meyer says:

    Sad where the he** are the parents? What parent lets their 14 year old go out at midnight to “party”. ? Come on people wear a condom if you don’t care about your child’s well being …If you can’t raise them right keep your dam* legs closed !

    1. em0886 says:

      Do you have kids?? I am sure that the kids didn’t tell their parents they were going out to “party” who in their right mind tells their parents that….I was partying at 14 and my parents didn’t know….I just think it’s funny how we immediately attack each other, judge ones parenting skills, and go right for welfare and race as being the things to blame….the ignorance is overwhelming

      1. em your check is waiting says:

        Funny. I bet you have kids and are on welfare.

        1. College Kid says:

          hahaha too funny

      2. @em0886 says:

        It’s pretty obvious you have multiple kids from mulitple Andres,DeMontres,Cordells,Tyrones,etc…Did welfare give you your free computer too?

        1. jeff says:

          there goes em again, sticking up for her constituency, her criminal base. you are just too precious for words.

    2. me says:

      But a condom will take away your new little welfare benefit (we don’t call them kids).

    3. libby says:

      With no moral compass you will have brutality spawned from government payments to have children out of wedlock, I know sounds old fashioned, but when young women had self respect and didn’t “give it up” to everything that fogged a mirror, out society was the better.
      I am willing to bet that although the vast majority decry this behavior, if you mentioned that children be taught the Ten Commandments and the compassion of Christ for one another you would be ridiculed.

      1. karyn says:

        FACT ALL OF YOU SOUND RACIST! and hun only GOd can judge people. the bible says that God will hear the cries of the poor and deliver them.

  7. fred says:

    this could be the reason that maple grove wants nothing do with section 8 housing…..good reason!

  8. angry at all the lazeness says:

    WELFARE and GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE are NOT a JOB or CAREER. IF EVERYONE WHO IS ON THIS AND IS CAPABLE OF WORK SHOULD GET OFF THEIR LAZY BUTT’S AND HELP OUR ECONOMY OUT BY GETTING A JOB AND FORCE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE TAKING OUR JOBS AND MONEY BACK TO THEIR HOME COUNTRY’S this AMERICA FOR AMERICANS NOT MAKE OUR COUNTRY LIKE YOURS. if yours was so great why not STAY HOME.

    1. Akcl says:

      Because sitting on your lazy a– is easier. There is no morales or values. It’s a revolving door of losers that don’t want to make it better. Generation after generation. With all the tools that are available today, learning some skill, there is no excuse when you are able bodied not to do something!!! But yet we keep giving welfare out like candy. I think that if you keep having kids to keep getting checks and you don’t make things better, mandatory tubes tied and any thugs, a vascectomy!!!

      1. Joe says:

        I Agree AKCL
        I have a brother that worked down at the Ramsey county welfare building. He said that people got into shouting fights because they thought they have more rights and were proud of the fact they were 3rd generation welfare a—–s. They actually said that. That’s what were the people of this county are breeding.

    2. Richard in Minneapolis says:

      If getting a job were as easy as “getting off our lazy butts” unemployment in this country wouldn’t be nearly so high. As someone who has sent out three job applications in the past week it is people like you who really fry my fat with your ALL CAPS rants implying that everyone who is unemployed is there by choice.

      1. paab says:

        boo hoo Richard, if you didn’t have the “welfare” of unemployment to fall back on you’d get a job, maybe not the “perfect” job, but buddy you’d take what was out there and Jose, and Juan could go back home to Mexico.

      2. Akcl says:

        @ Richard – i believe that there should be a system in place for when people to fall on hard times. I think people should be able to use the system in dire needs, especially in loss of a job, medical leave, etc. Especially if you have contributed to the system (taxes) but when you haven’t contributed and your reason is that you keep popping out kids like a Pez dispenser and using that as your job, no way!!! And when they don’t care about these kids, just the check. So to me, this is two way different senerios. Don’t even get me started about Obama approving illegals getting work permits!

  9. Fact is says:

    when was the last time you read about a two gangs of white kids firing a few rounds at each other?
    Read the stories in any of the local news sources around here, look at the mug shots and any victim infomation. It’s probably 5-1 blacks.
    Thats the facts, A** HOLE

    1. Enough is enough says:

      Fact is RIGHT!! I live in St. Cloud where the black population is about 10 % Yet they commit about 73% of the serious crimes in this city,

      1. getting rough up there says:

        What is going on in St. Cloud? Just about every day there is a violent crime reported. Is the word out in Chicago to come to St. Cloud?

    2. me says:

      more like 10-1 (20-1 for violent crimes)

  10. DUH...AVE says:

    How can this clown get away by saying this. If I would say the same comment about his race I would be tagged as a racist.

  11. sad says:

    wow, dont be afraid of the truth, facing facts is the only way our society will be able to end this kind of crime and if you think about it, the black population is who would benefit the most.

  12. I have a question.... says:

    Why is it considered “racist” to state that blacks commit more crimes as a percentage of their own population, compared to any other race in America?

    Why is it considered “racist” to state that whenever blacks move into a neighborhood, crimes rates go up and property values go down?

    Why is it “racist” when these two statements are FACT?

    I don’t get it…….

    1. Bob says:

      Amen!!!! Enough said, I could not have said it better. Thanks

    2. karyn says:

      It Becomes racist on the way you say it. Why did the fact that those young boys are BLACK come up! why are people even mentioning a so called FACT. A fact is something everyone knows. To tell you the truth i see more wrongdoing with WHITE PEOPLE. All the black folks i know are trustworthy and hardworking,
      here are some facts as well.
      People have to servive
      Not all people get treated fairly
      not everyone can get a good job
      and stating yourself “why is is when blacks move into a neighborhood, crime rates go up ect. THIS IS CRAZY AND BOLD TO EVEN STATE THIS YOURSELF. IT SHOWS THE IGNORANCE YOU HAVE IN OTHERS FEELINGS. IT IS NOT RIGHT TI JUDGE A RACE AND THAT IS WHAT YOUR DOING, GET SOME HELP PLEASE!!

    Hmm………..

    1. Jeff "Gangsta" J says:

      Isn’t it funny how most of those cities also have huge black populations.

  15. Jack says:

    Did you know that there are more black men in prison than there are those who have a high school diploma?

  16. jeff says:

    believe me when i say, i don’t excuse anyone from being a criminal. we all have choices and we make them for ourselves. i do have to wonder though, it seems to me that if many of you had the choice, all black people would be in a dachau, somewhere moving the same pile of rocks from one area to the next. i wonder if you hate the liberal north so much why you’d continue to stay in a place that is so dreadful?
