MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 20-year-old Red Lake man has been charged with murdering a minor allegedly over a stolen video game system.

The United States Attorney’s office says Joshua Francis Hill is accused of fatally shooting the minor on June 25 at a home on the Red Lake Indian Reservation.

The criminal complaint says Hill and the victim had been arguing about a stolen PlayStation 3 console.

Investigators say Hill asked two people to get rid of a bolt-action rifle for him two days after the shooting.

Hill made his first court appearance on Tuesday.
