Charges: Gun-toting felon was fleeing Mpls. police when he ran over, killed pregnant teen
A gun-toting felon was fleeing police with his SUV’s headlights off after dark in a north Minneapolis neighborhood when he fatally struck a pregnant teenager who vainly sought safety on a curb from the suspect’s vehicle, according to felony charges.
Howard W. Amos, 36, was charged last week in Hennepin County District Court with fleeing police in a motor vehicle resulting in a death and robbery in connection with running over Diana I. Garcia-Alvarado, 16, of Phoenix, on Sept. 2.
Amos was arrested and is now jailed in Ramsey County in an earlier incidence of fleeing police. Court and jail records list him as living in Minneapolis, while the Minneapolis police report notes that he lives in Mapleton, Ga.
