Followup MN: Man who Shot Teen Robber Lavauntai Broadbent will not be Charged
Lavauntai Broadbent of West St. Paul was fatally shot July 31, ending an apparent robbery spree for the teen and several friends.
In declining to charge the man for fatally shooting Broadbent, the county attorney's office said it "has concluded that no criminal charges are appropriate regarding Broadbent's death as the use of deadly force was legally justified."
According to police reports and charges against four teens who had been with Broadbent the day he was killed, police were called at 10:26 p.m. to the area of the World War I monument at Summit Avenue and Mississippi River Boulevard.
