Fight follows murder sentence in Ramsey County

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A family fight following a sentencing for murder at the Ramsey County Courthouse caused deputies to lock down the building before gunshots were fired outside nearby in a shooting believed to be related to the argument.

No one was injured in the shooting several blocks from the courthouse Monday.

A judge sentenced Marcus Baker to more than 40 years in prison for fatally shooting of Shawn Jones in the Summit-University neighborhood last November.

The defendant’s family apparently had a fight in the lobby of the courthouse and when it began to get physical deputies escorted those involved outside. Soon after deputies heard gunshots fired.
