ROBBINSDALE, Minnesota — A 17-year-old boy from Brooklyn Park will stand trial as an adult on charges related to aman on Memorial Day.
Anthony Guerrero is charged with one count of second-degree murder and one count of possession of an assault weapon under the age of 18.
Robbinsdale Police were called to the 3300 block of Grimes Avenue North just after 1:00 pm on May 29. They found the victim, who had “no pulse and no breathing”.
Accusation documents say doctors estimate the victim suffered severe brain damage as a result of prolonged CPR and massive bleeding. He also suffered from spinal fractures. The victim, Tycorian Estes, died in hospital later that week.
After a short chase, officers from both Robbinsdale and neighboring Crystal tracked down the suspicious vehicle and arrested two youths, including Guerrero, the same day.
Upon searching the vehicle, officers said they found a single round of 9mm ammunition, an extended magazine, a 9mm magazine, and a black 9mm handgun.
Officers also say they found a spent 9mm shell casing in the pocket of Guerrero’s sweatshirt.
Another person involved in the incident told police he helped facilitate a weapons exchange between Guerrero and Estes. At one point during the exchange, the two had a disagreement. Estes allegedly attempted to put Guerrero, who was holding a gun, in a submission hold. Guerrero then fired two bullets at Estes before he and the witness fled the scene.
