Woman pleads guilty to fatally shooting another woman last summer on Nicollet Mall
April 12, 2023
A 23-year-old woman has admitted to fatally shooting another woman last summer during a confrontation on Nicollet Mall in downtown Minneapolis.
Perishea L. Young, 23, of West St. Paul, pleaded guilty in Hennepin County District Court last week to second-degree intentional murder in connection with the shooting late in the afternoon on Aug. 10 at 9th Street and Nicollet Mall of Shawna Starr Campbell, 25, of St. Paul. Campbell died 10 days later at HCMC.
The plea deal between prosecutors and the defense calls for Young to receive a sentence ranging from 17½ to 20 years. Young remains jailed ahead of sentencing on May 8. After being given credit for time in jail since her arrest, a sentence at the top range would mean Young would expect to serve slightly more than 12½ years in prison and the balance on supervised release
