MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 21-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of murdering an Edina teen in north Minneapolis this past weekend has been released.

Authorities believe he was acting in self-defense when he fatally shot 18-year-old Earl Malone Saturday night at the intersection of Knox Avenue North and 26th Street.

Police took the 21-year-old man into custody at the scene. Sources tell WCCO the man has a conceal-and-carry permit, and told police he shot Malone because he had tried to rob him.
