Monday, August 15, 2016

Two men have been charged with attempted first-degree murder for a shooting that occurred at a bus stop in North Minneapolis, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman announced Monday.

Anthony Lamont Foote, 24, of St. Paul, and Anthony Revon Clay, 25, of Robbinsdale have been charged with attempted murder in the first degree, assault in the second degree, and possessing a firearm. Clay has also been charged with fleeing a peace officer in a vehicle.

“Random shooting on our streets must stop,” said Freeman “Our aggressive prosecution of this case will reflect how seriously we consider these wonton acts.  Clay and Foote deserve to do real time for their actions.”

According to the criminal complaint, Minneapolis police were dispatched to a bus stop in the area of Dowling Ave. & Fremont Ave N. Thursday morning in response to a shooting. A victim was found lying on the street with a serious injury to his face.

Witnesses observed two males involved in the shooting run from the scene and flee in a car. They later identified the two men as Foote and Clay. When officers tried to stop the car, Foote fled on foot and Clay drove away. Both men were apprehended later.

Foote and Clay made their first court appearances this afternoon and bail was set at $1 million
