A South St. Paul man on Sunday identified his son as the 17-year-old who was shot to death last week in Chanhassen allegedly by an 18-year-old woman who has been arrested.
Manuel Bernal Jurado was hit by gunfire early Thursday in a residential neighborhood in the 700 block of Conestoga Trail, his father, Manuel Bernal, said in a phone interview with the Star Tribune.
Bernal said his son was a South St. Paul High School student who "enjoyed hanging around with his friends and was enjoying his teenage years, going out and dancing. ... He had a great personality, [and] was very outgoing and charismatic. A lot of people loved him."
