Howard Lake Sentenced to 4 Years After St. Cloud Shooting


(Foley, MN) — The sentence is four years in prison for a Howard Lake man accused in a drug-related shooting in St. Cloud.

Nineteen-year-old Julian Hill pleaded guilty to a drive-by shooting as part of a plead deal with prosecutors.

The criminal complaint says Hill met the victim in an alley April 23rd to exchange marijuana for cocaine, but the victim and his partner planned to rob Hill.

He told investigators that he handed over the dope and money and they tried to leave. Hill said he fired a shot toward a shadowy figure running away, heard someone yell, and then fled in his vehicle.

Police found the victim with a gunshot wound to the head, and a handgun and two bags of cocaine in the alley.
