ST. PAUL (WCCO) — Three men have been charged in connection to a bar shooting in St. Paul that left a 26-year-old man dead and another man wounded, according to the Ramsey County Attorney’s Office.

Byron Dean Brantley, 31, was charged with aiding and abetting intentional second-degree murder in the death of Trevell Glass, and aiding and abetting attempted intentional second-degree murder in the shooting of 28-year-old Ryan Davis.

Leandrews Cevale Miller, Jr., 27, was charged with aiding an offender, and aiding and abetting intentional second-degree murder in the death of Glass.

Xavier Jerome Buckhanan, 36, was charged with attempted intentional second-degree murder of Davis, as well as possession of a firearm by an ineligible person.

According to the complaint, the three men, all from St. Paul, were in Born’s Bar on 899 Rice St. on April 13, 2011 prior to the shooting. They were asked to leave after getting into a fight. Glass wasn’t involved in the initial altercation, but tried to break up the fight, according to a witness.

After leaving the bar, Glass was fatally shot by Brantley, the complaint said. Davis, who had been talking to Glass, was also shot and taken to Regions Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

“This incident was a senseless tragedy that has shaken our community. Thanks to quick work by the St. Paul Police Department, the men responsible are in custody and will be held accountable,” said Ramsey County Attorney John Choi.

All three men are from St. Paul.

    2. Susan says:

      That is so funny you said that. What about White collar crime? What do you have to say about that? Born how old are you? Stop trying to quote something you know nothing about. And that comment about their shooting up there own. One day God is going to put you a position where everything you ever thought, or said out loud that was unkind to another person is going to come back and and bite you in the A**. Now sleep on that!

    The problem here is the bikers moved on to the East side. This place is much worse than ones a little north.

    racism = stupidity……therefore Racist are Stupid! hahaha

  7. MN Parent says:

    Keep in mind that the black man shot and killed was trying to STOP the fight.

    Salim Chiggin – maybe some comments were removed, or maybe not, but no one mentioned race until your comment of “racism = stupidity……therefore Racist are Stupid! hahaha” Why turn this into a race issue??

  9. Cassandra C says:

    i swear Racism is IGNORANT AND CHILDISH and not to mention SICKENING. its 2011 and all people have to comment is about them being black? Last I checked blacks arent the only ones killing. That is a SEPERATE issue right now and i wish people would GROW THE HELL UP i mean ESPECIALLY now that we have OBAMA, a black/mixed President running our country. i cant STAND ignorant pricks who sit and hide behind the anonymity of a computer screen and try to put people down. Sad but true, its GROWN ASS PEOPLE that still find it funny to be racist. Get a life jerks. Oprah and Obama are two very successful, smart and inspirational not to mention MINORITY figures right now so F- your opinion! How about you show some sympathy for a number of people who have lost their loved ones to death and prison. SHAME ON YOU

    Rest Peacefully Tre Glass

    Was these guys in a gang

    1. Susan says:

      Not the person that was shot and killed

  11. Susan says:

    Some people are just jerks, That man that was shot and killed was a son and a father. How does race play into this? The man lost his life trying to break up a fight. He die doing the right thing! For all people who have a racist comment, remember, what goes around comes around and one day you will be judged if not carried by six and we will see what people have to say about YOU!

  12. Britt says:

    I would appreciate it if all of you would just leave my cousin alone and let my family grieve in peace. Weve already lost enough and i’m tired of people talking about him and spitting on his name. He’s gone and we would like to mourn in peace. And for those wondering no he was not in a gang so please keep your rumors and ignorant comments to yourself.

  13. Susan says:

    For all who posted negative comments, it was beautiful, to see how many people came out to show their support. So many people came to wish him a farewell. For a moment it seemed like the whole world had stopped and watched him pass by.

    Rest In Peace Trevell Glass SR.
