Police investigating apparent homicide in Red Wing
RED WING — Authorities are investigating an apparent homicide in downtown Red Wing that occurred overnight.
Dangelo Masterjohn, 27, of Red Wing, was found unresponsive on a sidewalk just after midnight today on the 400 block of Sanderson Street. First responders declared him deceased at the scene after finding a bullet wound, according to Red Wing Police Chief Roger Pohlman.
The victim was identified at 10:30 a.m. after Masterjohn's family had been notified. Pohlman said the body is being sent to the medical examiner's office to confirm the cause of death.
The crime scene is a few blocks east of downtown. The Goodhue County Sheriff's Office, Pierce County Sheriff's Office and the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension are still investigating.
No arrests have been made in the deadly shooting, though Pohlman says a person of interest has been identified; that suspect has not been named. Because of that, he says "we do not believe there is any ongoing danger to the public."
The victim — who also went by Lamont Jermaine Tyson and Lamont Jermaine Tyson III, court records show — had felony convictions for failing to register as a predatory offender, as well as a 2010 conviction for third-degree criminal sexual assault, all under the Tyson name.
He had multiple drug convictions under the name of Masterjohn, most of them misdemeanors or petty misdemeanors.
