MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A Hopkins man has been charged in connection with the shooting death of an 18-year-old man in a Minneapolis park.
Chance Adams, 26, was charged with second degree murder, first degree robbery and possession of a firearm or ammunition by a felon.
According to the criminal complaint, 18-year-old George Pineda and another person were walking in the park near Lyndale Avenue North and Webber Parkway shortly after 3 a.m. Saturday when Adams approached them with a gun.
Adams allegedly told the two to lie on the ground, robbed them and fired multiple shots.

Police arrested Adams nearby after someone called police and said a person tried to enter their home.
Adams is expected in court Tuesday. Prosecutors will seek $2 million bail.
