The complainant states that the following facts establish PROBABLE CAUSE: Your complainant, Sgt. Chris Hauglid, is an investigator with the Minneapolis Police Department assigned to the Homicide Unit. In that capacity, he has investigated the facts and circumstances of the offense alleged herein by reviewing reports prepared by other officers and by conducting personal investigation. Your complainant has learned that on July 29, 2003, Marcus Julius Dortch, Victim A, was found with multiple gunshot wounds near the intersection or 22nd Street East and Oakland Avenue South, Minneapolis, Hennepin County, Minnesota. A known adult female hereinafter referred to as Victim B had sustained a grazing bullet injury in her back. Ambulance crews transported the victims to the Hennepin County Medical Center. Victim A was pronounced dead by emergency room physicians; Victim B was treated and released. Victim B was interviewed by the police. She stated that she was approaching the intersection of 22 nd and Oakland Avenue South when she observed an adult female known to her as “Dee.” She observed Dee talking with the victim who was standing in the street with his bicycle. Victim B joined the conversation. Shortly thereafter, Victim B observed two men quickly approaching them. Both men were armed with handguns and dressed in black. As they got to within two feet of Victim A, one of them called him “Nigger.” When Victim A turned, the two men began to shoot at him. Victim A tried to flee with Victim B and the men chased both of them. The men continued to fire their guns from close range. The men fled the scene. A known adult male, hereinafter referred to as Witness C, told police that he had witnessed the shooting. Witness C was with a friend, Witness D, walking on the street near the shooting. Near 22nd Street East and Oakland Avenue South, Witness C observed two men. One of those men was introduced to him as “Thirsty.” Witness C did not remember the name of the second man. Both men were dressed in black hoodies and dark pants. The men were FORM-J REV. 12/95 Page 2 standing in a “cubby hole” by the trees. Witness C and D continued to walk across Oakland Avenue South. Witness C heard some footsteps and turned to see “Thirsty,” AKA JONATHAN NICHOLAS TURNER, the defendant named herein, and the second man running. He heard shots fired and so he took cover. He continued to observe and saw both men firing from close range into Victim A’s back. The unidentified man ran from the scene. Witness C continued to observe the defendant and saw him standing over the victim clicking an empty gun. The defendant then fled. Witness C and D left the area in a car. A short time later, Witness D called the defendant and talked with him briefly about the shooting. Your complainant has confirmed that a call was made from Witness D’s cell phone to the defendant. Witness D corroborated the statement from Witness C. He stated that he observed two men dressed in black run up on Victims A and B from the nearby bushes. He then observed the men shoot Victims A and B. In his initial interviews, Witness D stated that the defendant was not one of the persons involved in the shooting. When interviewed a second time, however, he told the police that the defendant was one of the shooters and that he had not identified him previously because he didn’t want to get involved. The defendant is presently in custody. Page 3 COMPLAINT SUPPLEMENT CCT SECTION/Subdivision M.O.C. GOC OFFENSE COUNT 1: MURDER IN THE SECOND DEGREE (INTENTIONAL) (FELONY) MINN.
