Authorities have arrested a 37-year-old Minneapolis man in Florida in connection with the Feb. 27 shooting death of another man in Minneapolis.
Antwan Darnell Cosey is in custody on suspicion of second-degree murder, according to the Minneapolis Police Department, which gave the following details of the crime and subsequent arrest.
At about 6:10 p.m. on Feb. 27, officers responded to reports of a shooting on the 700 block of 18th Street East in Minneapolis.
They arrived to find Frankie Golden, 42, unresponsive outside the building with a gunshot wound to his chest. He was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Witnesses said Golden was waiting outside the building to visit his 9-month-old child. He was speaking on his cell phone when Cosey allegedly approached him and ordered him to move out of the way.
An argument ensued and Cosey allegedly pulled a gun out of his waistband, shooting Golden before running away.
Cosey, who lived at a halfway house nearby, was identified as a suspect based on surveillance video and witness accounts. Police soon learned he had purchased a bus ticket to Texas on March 3.
With the help of authorities in Florida, Cosey was arrested Friday night when his bus arrived at a Greyhound bus station in Fort Walton Beach, police say.
He was transported to the Okaloosa County Jail, where he is being held pending extradition.
