According to the criminal complaint, police were called to Lake Street and Fifth Avenue South around 5 a.m. July 7. Officers found Salter dead of a shotgun blast to the chest and neck.
The attorney’s office said Moore, Winston and Holden decided they were going to rob a man who Winston and Holden had a past conflict with. When they could not find that man, they came upon Salter and decided to rob him instead. Moore exited the car and told Salter to hand over his money.READ MORE: 3 Families Displaced By Northeast Minneapolis Triplex Fire
