He killed a man for hitting his car, which didn’t have a scratch, Minnesota cops say | The News Tribune

Sao Yim Jr. was sure that someone had just hit his car that he parked outside, police say.

Yim Jr. was smoking marijuana and drinking alcohol with three other friends in his girlfriend’s apartment on Monday night, according to a criminal complaint filed by police. The 25-year-old could see his white Honda from his girlfriend’s apartment, police say, and watched as the man he suspected of hitting his car parked in a nearby lot and approached the vehicle.

He and his companions confronted 40-year-old Ahmed Muafaq Abdulhu Al Naddf. The two sides began to argue, police say, and that’s when Yim Jr. brandished a semi-automatic handgun.

Naddf whipped out his cell phone and began to record the confrontation in response, the complaint states, and two of Yim Jr.’s friends ran away. But just as he and his other friend — 25-year-old Eric Lee — seemed to be walking away as well, Yim Jr. fired his gun and hit Naddf in the chest, police say. Never miss a local story.
