Man, 29, Charged With Murder In Parking Ramp Stabbing

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 29-year-old man has been charged in the stabbing death of his friend in a Minneapolis parking ramp early Monday morning, according to the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office.

Kevin Lamont Mims of Minneapolis faces felony charges of second-degree murder and second-degree assault. The assault charge stems from stabbing wounds suffered by a second man.

According to the criminal complaint, Mims picked up three friends Sunday night, parked at a ramp at 318 2nd Avenue North and went to the Envy Club in downtown Minneapolis. Later, at approximately 3 a.m., the four friends returned to the car. There, Mims began to argue with the front seat passenger, identified as R.B. Mims.

Mims allegedly hit R.B. in the face, got on top of him and continued punching.

Then, Brian Dean Nelson, 20, of St. Paul got out of the backseat of the car and ran over to the passenger side door, opened it and attempted to pull Mims off of R.B., the complaint said.

At some point during the altercation, Mims allegedly produced a scissors and stabbed R.B. in the arm and Nelson twice — once in the heart, the complaint said.

Prosecutors are seeking bail of $550,000 for Mims.

    What? They ran out of knives? So they have graduated to scissors! Good God what is next? Stabbing deaths with IPODs? I say continue to cleanse the gene pool!

      • you stupid teabaghater

          You’re stupid would also be correct. But I also think a cleansing is needed.

        …your stupid “what”? Do you mean your stupid Name “teabaghater”?

        Do you have a problem with trying to be fiscally responsible with other people’s money? Or, are you comfortable with elected officials ignoring their fiduciary responsibilities and wasting other people’s money on payback projects like solar panel companies? Does the term “impeachment” mean anything to you?

        If you hate the tea party, do you just find yourself living month to month racking up the credit card debt and not thinking it’s a problem? Or, did the bank take away that credit card already? Or, are you promoting some gay bashing agenda with your Name?

        Either way, your comment of “your stupid”, shows you didn’t get past the 6th grade and shouldn’t be reading this website because it’s beyond your skill level. How’s that minimum wage job working for you?

        I’m a Democrat and a tea party supporter. I graduated 6th grade.

      Maybe that’s why he lost. He brought an IPOD to a scissors fight!

  • Wesley

    “second-degree murder and second-degree murder” – What’s the difference? hahaha

  • Ban Sicissors

    RB Mims was just starting to turn his life around. How could something like this happen? Oh the tragedy.

    • right on!

      I think only the military and cops should be able to have scissors. Only when the politicians have the courage to buck the National Scissors association and ban pocket scissors and assault shears will our streets be safe.
