Three Men Charged for Drive-By Shooting at Maplewood Apartment Complex

Last week’s drive-by shooting, in which over four dozen rounds were fired at two Maplewood apartment complexes, has resulted in the arrest of three individuals.

According to accusations, many rounds went through windows and walls of buildings along Clarence Street North, and three cars were also hit by gunfire. There were no injuries.

The trio then led police on a high-speed chase from Maplewood to St. Anthony in a stolen Dodge Charger, where they slammed into a power post and fled. According to the allegations, officers quickly apprehended them while also collecting four Glock pistols, three of which were stolen, near the collision scene.

In Ramsey County District Court on June 13, Elias-Kareem Hany Aly, 20, of St. Paul, Davion Lazarick Gaines, 20, of Minneapolis, and De’Voncea Lashoun Griffo, 23, of Little Canada were charged with drive-by shooting-toward an inhabited vehicle or building.

Aly and Griffo are also accused with having a firearm or ammunition in the possession of an ineligible person.

Officers were called to the apartment complex at 1:50 p.m. after receiving several reports of gunshots. 44 round casings of at least two different calibers, as well as several bullet fragments, were discovered by police.

The gunshots was said to have come from a black Dodge Charger with numerous individuals inside, according to witnesses. As the automobile circled the apartment complexes, surveillance video captured the sound of rapid-fire gunfire.

According to witnesses, the gunshot looked to be aimed at someone in one of the cars that was hit.

On White Bear Avenue, a Minnesota State Patrol trooper saw the Charger and followed it with emergency lights and sirens. The motorist took off at a high speed, merging onto westbound Interstate 94.

According to charges, the automobile proceeded at a high rate of speed, overtaking cars on the shoulder before heading north on Interstate 35E at more than 100 mph.

It then traveled west on I-694 and south on Silver Lake Road, colliding with a power pole at Stinson Boulevard and Cottage Lane before coming to a halt in front of a townhouse.

The three suspects ran from the automobile, which had been stolen earlier in the day in Minneapolis, according to police. They were apprehended near the accident site.

Two of the four pistols discovered by cops featured “switches,” which convert semiautomatic weapons to fully automatic weapons, as well as extended magazines. Another was equipped with a 50-round drum magazine.

Aly had three previous convictions, according to court records: fifth-degree possession of a controlled drug, driving while intoxicated, and possession of marijuana in a motor vehicle.

Last year, Gaines was found guilty of tampering with a motor vehicle.

According to the allegations filed last week, Griffo has a prior conviction for possessing a handgun by an ineligible person and a current case of escaping police in a motor vehicle.
