Teen Trio Indicted For West St. Paul Shooting Death
DAKOTA COUNTY, Minn. (WCCO) – Three teenagers were indicted Friday in connection with the West. St. Paul shooting death of 31-year-old Luis David Reyes-Galvan on Jan. 11, 2013, according to Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom.
Donovan Michael Diego (18 at the time) of St. Paul, Christino Andres Rosario (16 at the time) of St. Paul, and Malik Jamal Alize Farmer (17 at the time) of St. Paul, were each indicted for first-degree murder while committing aggravated robbery, second-degree intentional murder and second-degree murder while committing a felony.
The complaint alleges that the teens planned on robbing Reyes-Galvan with guns they had acquired in a burglary in West St. Paul on Jan. 10, 2013. The teens first knocked on the Reyes-Galvan’s door, and after no response, they waited in a nearby vehicle until he arrived.
Reyes-Galvan returned home with his 10-year-old daughter and 12-year-old nephew. His daughter recalled that the teens approached him on both sides with guns drawn.
After sending her and his nephew inside the house, he confronted the men. After a brief altercation, Reyes-Galvan was shot near his left shoulder.
The medical examiner said the bullet exited through the right side of Reyes-Galvan’s chest. The victim was transported to Regions Hospital where he was pronounced dead from blood loss.
