Police: Man Arrested, Charged After W. St. Paul Bar Shooting

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A St. Paul man has been charged with attempted murder and assault after allegedly shooting a man in the chest early Wednesday morning at a West St. Paul bar, police said.

Police responded to the shooting at Cherokee Tavern, located at 886 Smith Ave. South, at 2:15 a.m. When they arrived, they found a 29-year-old St. Paul man with a bullet wound in his chest. The suspect, however, had fled the scene.

On Thursday, police identified the suspect as 25-year-old Stanaley Yoeun. That night, police went to his home, located on the 800 block of Hubbard Street, where they tried to arrest Yoeun. But Yoeun wouldn’t leave his home or come to his door.

Police said they talked to Yoeun on the phone, but again he refused to leave his home, saying that he would have a shoot out with police if they entered.

The St. Paul Critical Incident Response Team then began negotiations with Yoeun, who eventually came out of his home and into custody.

The Dakota County Attorney’s Office charged Yoeun Friday with one count of second-degree attempted murder, one count of first-degree assault and one count of second-degree assault. Yoeun is currently in the Dakota County Jail.

The condition of the 29-year-old victim is not yet known.

    The Cherokee Tavern is in the westside neighborhood of the City of St Paul, not in the City of West St Paul.
