Antonio Marcus Flood, age 42, DOB 11/02/72 is the most recent homicide victim in North Minneapolis, click here for Star Tribune article. Flood was shot on the 2600 block of Penn Avenue. He clung to life for most of a week, but ultimately died.
Twenty-sixth and Penn was also the site of a bus shooting which claimed the life of Drew "The Chef" Billingsley. There have been other deadly and almost-deadly incidents at that location, as well.
Flood was fresh off a conviction for "Liquor in the Park." It was only November 24 of last month that Flood was convicted for this minor crime, and he still owed the court system the sum of...
...$78. A charge for drug paraphernalia was dismissed. Application was made for a deferred payment. No cases show up on the civil side of MNCIS. The deceased Mr. Flood is something of a mystery, but one small clue turned up...
Incredibly, Flood was featured here on JNS blog in a minor and almost accidental way. When I wrote recently about the detention of Alfred Delano Flowers, Jr., and I copied and pasted a portion of the jail roster, Flood's name appeared.
