Derry Darnell Evans is, according to a criminal complaint filed by the Hennepin County Attorney, click here, much worse than an ordinary Northside criminal. This guy allegedly burglarized his female COUSIN. Most Northside criminals have the decency to rob and burglarize people who aren't their own blood relatives.
After the burglary, Evans and the cousin kept having verbal altercations on the subject of the burglary. See, that's the problem with robbing a relative. You'll keep running into them.
So Evans allegedly decided it was time for his cousin to shut up about the burglary. According to the criminal complaint, Evans was a passenger in a tan Tahoe van, license plate 179 HCV, and this van pulled up right beside the cousin on James Avenue North...
Evans, who was in the front passenger seat, displayed a handgun and then fired twice in the direction of the cousin and another witness.
Apparently, Evans needs to ask himself "What part of 'My cousin will call the cops on me' do I not understand?"
The cousin called the cops. Again.
The Tahoe turned up at 3331 Colfax Ave. N., which has been on the vacant building registration since March of last year. The vehicle accelerated into the alley at a high rate of speed, but then stopped. If I had to guess, police had the vehicle cut off at the other end of the alley.
Police recovered one discharged cartridge casing where the shooting took place and obtained an audio tape from the cousin in which Derry reportedly admits to being involved in the burglary.
To make this even more of a family feud situation, the driver of the Tahoe was Trezjuan Caprise Sims, who is the BROTHER of the victim whose house was burglarized. Sims says his sister MADE UP THE ENTIRE STORY.
Derry faces five charges over this alleged incident.
His residence is listed on the criminal complaint as 1616 Plymouth Ave. N. Apartment 102, an address that does not exist.
I believe the correct address is "1516 Plymouth Ave. N.," which are townhouse apartments.
