MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — New court documents are shedding light on a fatal shooting in south Minneapolis in September.

Tescil Romalis Mason-Kimmons, 33, is facing murder charges in the Sept. 17 fatal shooting of John Robert Lacy. According to the charges filed against him, the victim was also seriously wounded in a stabbing just days before Mason-Kimmons shot him in the head.

Prosecutors say Lacy was walking by Peavey Park in south Minneapolis that morning, just after 7 a.m., when a car pulled up behind him, a man got out and shot him in the back of the head. The suspect then got back into the car and drove off.

Video surveillance footage led investigators to obtain a search warrant for Mason-Kimmons’s home, where they found a revolver similar to the one used in the shooting.

The stabbing took place three days earlier, and prosecutors say Mason-Kimmons was the prime suspect in that case as well, and was arrested. Investigators say Mason-Kimmons told Lacy he was going to kill him in a phone call from jail.

If convicted, Mason-Kimmons could face up to 40 years in prison.

    Forget prison, bring back the death penalty and remove this cancer from society, he obviously has no regard for human life.
