Psychological Exam Ordered For Owatonna Man Charged With Murder
Minneapolis, MN (KROC-Am News) - A Hennepin County judge has ordered a psychological examination for an Owatonna man charged with a recent murder in the Twin Cities.
The evaluation will be used to determine if 27-year-old Mubarak Musse is competent to stand trial for the March 15th shooting death of a Minneapolis man. Musse is charged with second-degree murder and is currently being held on $1 million bail.
According to the criminal complaint, Musse was arguing with the other man inside the Village Market in the Phillips neighborhood of Minneapolis just before the deadly shooting. Security camera recordings show the two men went outside and got into a physical altercation before the Owatonna man pulled on a hand and fired multiple shots at the other man and continued shooting even after the victim fell to the ground. Police found 15 spent shell casings at the crime scene.
The court documents say Musse turned himself in to police about two hours after the shooting and admitted to investigators that he was the shooter. He is currently scheduled to return to court for another hearing on June 8.
