CASE LAW UPDATE: Whether the evidence was sufficient to sustain defendant’s conviction of drive by shooting?
Defendant was convicted of drive by shooting and assault. He appealed. On appeal, he argued that the evidence was not sufficient to sustain his conviction of drive by shooting. The Minnesota Court of Appeals noted that two (2) victims testified that they heard defendant threaten them, saw him point the barrel of a rifle in their direction, and heard a gunshot. The Minnesota Court of Appeals held that this direct evidence was sufficient to sustain defendant’s conviction.
