Man Facing Attempted Murder Charges in Rochester Drive-by Shooting
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - A Rochester man is now facing attempted murder and other charges as the suspect in a drive-by shooting in a NW residential neighborhood Wednesday night.
The criminal complaint against 25-year-old Iman Iman was filed Friday morning.
It lists two charges each of attempted 1st-degree murder, 2nd-degree assault and drive-by shooting. During his arraignment, his bail was set at $500,000.
Iman and his brother were arrested several hours after the shooting. Police Lt. Mike Sadauskis says investigators obtained some “pretty good video” of the actual shooting that left two victims with gunshot wounds to their legs.
Sadauskis says Iman and his brother were implicated in an April 11th incident at a local convenience store. He says they were part of a group that chased a man into the store. Sadauskis says it was learned one of the shooting victims “acted as an intermediary” in hopes of de-escalating the situation. He says that may have been a motive for the shooting.
At this point, police aren't sure if Iman's brother was involved in the shooting.
