Wonderful news from our Shakopee PD!!! We have 2 in custody with one being the alleged shooter. Neither are from Shakopee.
Over the weekend, the Shakopee Police Department arrested two men in connection with the shooting. Anthony James Cox, age 21 of Minneapolis is believed to be the lone principal actor in the shooting incident. Brooks Kurr, age 36 of Annandale was arrested.
Robbery still appears to be the motive bend the homicide. At least one of the arrested is a former acquaintance of the victim. Again, the police department feels confident that there is no known threat to the general public.
At this time, the Shakopee Police Department is no longer looking for any additional suspects associated with this incident.
