Devon Derrick Parker Arrested On Murder Charge, Held On Raft Of Additional Charges, Too...

Mugshots are public domain, blog post by John Hoff

Devon Derrick Parker (DOB 4/8/93) was arrested today on charges of murder and a raft of other charges and is being held on $60,000 bail currently. Bail is likely to increase since that's bail for a less serious charge and bail hasn't been determined on the murder charge...

 
JNS blog is still trying to confirm the name of the victim but the residence where the murder took place was 3739 Aldrich Ave. N., a homesteaded property owned by a man and wife who don't have so much as a speeding ticket on their record. Mainstream media are relating details of the murder which don't make a lot of sense to me; I will link to one account (click here) but I am waiting for more clarification from police about what they think happened.

One media entity originally reported the suspect was 40 years old but later corrected it to 20. The original mistake was, however, caught in Google.

Pioneer Press ‎- 44 minutes ago
A man pleaded for a North Minneapolis homeowner to call 911, saying he feared for his life, and then shot the ... Devon Derrick Parker, 40, was booked into the Hennepin County Jail on probable cause of murder Friday night.

The jail roster is showing a raft of charges, as follows:

1/1 MURDER MINNEAPOLIS PD PROBABLE CAUSE PROB CAUSE $0 HOLD W/O BAIL ..

2/1 ASSAULT-4TH DEG-PEACE OFFICER-DEMONSTRABLE BODILY HARM OR THROWS/TRANSFERS BODILY FLUIDS OR FECES-F HCSO BENCH WARRANT FELONY $60,000 BAIL SET BY DC ..

5/3 DISORDERLY CONDUCT-OFFENSIVE/ABUSIVE/NOISY/OBSCENE MINNEAPOLIS PD BENCH WARRANT MISD $0
 
Parker's address on the jail roster is 2915 Russell Ave. N., a rental owned by Veritas RE Holdings, 1021 Alicante Dr., Danville, CA.

This guy's name is interesting because it's DEVON DERRICK PARKER and there was a DERRICK ANTHONY PARKER who was arrested and released after being present at the homicide of Devonte Coppage in St. Paul just a month ago. This may be nothing more than a strange coincidence but...

Noted.

The mug shot above shows an arrest in a robbery charge in 2011. Parker's court record on MNCIS shows a conviction on a charge of drug paraphernalia in a public place in July of last year. He was also guilty of a crime against transit operation in 2012 at a felony level. He was supposed to be in court TODAY on a warrant for failing to appear at a hearing.

Hmmmmm.

Guilty of loitering in 2011. Guilty of Third Degree assault in 2011. He was supposed to be in court TODAY on a warrant for failing to appear at a hearing.

Hmmmm. Again.

If the media account is true and this guy claimed he was being chased by somebody, well, it's more likely he was being chased by the POLICE than anybody else.

I expect to have the criminal complaint against this guy (assuming it comes to that) by Monday.

This guy threw his own shit at police officers, twice?

Sounds like serious mental illness - asking the guy to call 911 and then shooting him. Could be a marijuana-induced psychotic breakdown. Those are real. Google it.

Great reporting, bungling the facts, making guesses. I'll stick to the StarTribune for the correct facts that most normal people can understand.

BTW the victim is Thomas Sonnenberg, a 69-year-old retired grandfather.

If you consider yourself a journalist, why don't you follow the journalistic ethics?
Wouldn't your reporting be more accurate and fair?

Several years ago a young woman was pounding at my front door, wanting to get help. I immediately called 911 and informed them of the situation. A bit later when the police arrived, they reassured I did the right thing: not to open my door, but call for assistance. I felt bad, but it turns out the woman did escape her attackers. It's a sad state of affairs that we have to think twice about helping a fellow human. Just shaking my head, or as the kids say nowadays, JSMH.

This blog serves a different function than does the Strib. I'm glad it's here.

Ya the purpose this blog serves is to portray north Minneapolis as a thug infested, crime riddled ghetto, filled with sub-standard housing owned by slumlords.
And it does a wonderful job of doing that.

Ya because if there was no JNS there would be: no thugs, no crime and no substandard rental housing in NOMI!!!

The story made the UK news. More details reported by the Brits, of course.

I live about 2 blocks from where this murder took place, I feel very bad for his wife and daughters, they lost husband and father and grandfather and the wife nearly had her life claimed as well.

Dont blame JNS for the insane barbarism of former Chicago residents now in NoMi.

Tie your tubes, wear a hat. Get a job. Raise your children to be respectful. Quit blaming everyone else and playing the race card. This BS happens everyday on the North side and seemingly only there or within a bus ride from it. Gentrification isnt a bad thing when it forces you POS back to Illinois.

The only difference between Devon Derrick Parker and a bucket of shit is the bucket.

Blogs are nice but if you really want to do something and make a change why wont you invest and help these kids grow find jobs housing, just a support system? I was a friend of Devon and besides what happen that night he was a cool ass dude and funny, always able to put a smile on someones face wasn't an A+ student but he managed. And all these old cases don't mean nothing because people are not set to live on them that is not who they are only a situation. so stop caging my people JNS, MPD, Government. all comes down to it the war is gonna be with the people

I think I'll just keep doing exactly what I'm doing. It is a waste of breath to tell somebody who is very good at what they are doing, "Hey, why don't you do this OTHER thing I think you should do?"

Did you take the time to think about whether you were making a good argument before you wasted the effort of typing that one out? Go back and try again and this time get some brain cells involved.
