9-year-old Boy Killed by Shooter
A man was charged Wednesday with murdering a 9-year-old boy and wounding the boy’s mother and another woman while, according to the authorities, shooting randomly at passing cars in Oakdale, a St. Paul suburb where the man lives. The authorities say the man, Nhan Lap Tran, 34, had a 9-millimeter pistol and about 200 rounds of ammunition when he was arrested on Monday. The boy, Devin Aryal, was shot in the head. His mother and a woman in another car were wounded. A judge ordered Mr. Tran to undergo a mental health evaluation.
