Man charged with murder of woman’s death in Brooklyn Park
According to a criminal complaint, Brooklyn Park police officers were stopped by a group of people near the intersection of Brookdale Drive and Zane Avenue at around 4:20 p.m. on August 21, 2019. The officers were referred to a woman who was lying on the street floor in a parking lot for the Gold Key Mall. Witnesses told officers the woman had just been shot and she appeared motionless and unresponsive.
Officers at the scene spoke to several witnesses who said the woman went to a mall hair salon and was hit by a black man who was later identified as Hill. According to the complaint, Hill asked the woman if she remembered him, and the two then hugged. Witnesses in the parlor told officers Hill asked her to come outside to see something and moments later she heard a loud bang and saw the woman fall to the floor. Hill then got on the passenger side of an SUV and fled the area.
The complaint alleged that officials were monitoring and watching a Toyota Camry leave a residence on Logan Avenue in Minneapolis, where the person the SUV was registered lived. The officers stopped the Camry and three people, including Hill, were taken into custody. The complaint says that one of the inmates was identified as the driver of the SUV after the shooting, DeShawn Marvell Slaughter.
After executing a search warrant, officers found an inhaler with the victim’s name and a wallet that matched the victim’s description. The complaint states that Hill later admitted shooting the woman and taking her purse, and also said that Slaughter was driving. Officers later found the 9mm pistol believed to have been used in the shooting.
