Police have arrested a 27-year-old Burnsville man in connection with the Monday evening shooting that left 22-year-old Anthony Hartman dead at a Rosemount car wash.
According to information released by the city of Rosemount Jonas Gerald Grice turned himself in shortly after 6 a.m. July 14 at the Burnsville Police Department. Grice is currently being held at the Dakota County Jail. Police expect him to be charged with second degree murder by noon Friday.
Police continue to investigate the incident. They do not plan to release any more information until charges are filed.
Police believe Grice was washing his car around 6 p.m. Monday when he got into a confrontation of some kind with Hartman and another individual, who had stopped to vacuum their car. He reportedly fired several shots, then drove away.
Rosemount police chief Gary Kalstabakken said the incident lasted only about 30 seconds from the time Hartman's friend first encountered the shooter until the time Hartman was shot.
Hartman was a 2006 graduate of Rosemount High School. He played football for the Irish and was an Eagle Scout. His death is the first homicide in Rosemount since March of 2008, when Rosemount High School student Dakota Butler stabbed classmate Cody Casey. Police believe that was the first homicide in the city's history.
Police received several tips after releasing a composite sketch of the suspect Tuesday night.
