Stepdad charged with starting gunfire that killed Woodbury teen at grad party


Keith Dawson

The fatal shooting of a Woodbury teenager at a high school graduation party over the weekend was in response to the boy's stepfather rushing to the scene moments earlier with a gun and opening fire.

Keith Dawson, 35, of St. Paul, was charged Monday in Washington County District Court with drive-by shooting, assault with a dangerous weapon and illegal possession of a gun in connection with his role in the chain of events that left his 14-year-old stepson, Demaris Nathan Hobbs-Ekdahl, shot to death Saturday night in the 6100 block of Edgewood Avenue.

Dawson remains jailed without bail ahead of a court appearance Tuesday. Court records do not list an attorney for him.
