Teen suspect in Nudieland mass shooting arrested on murder, assault charges

The teen is charged with aiding and abetting murder and six counts of felony assault

Eight months after a mass shooting left a beloved member of the punk scene dead and six others injured at a show in south Minneapolis, a teen suspect is in custody and faces seven felony charges.

Dominic James Burris, who turned 18 last week, appeared in juvenile court Tuesday afternoon on charges of aiding and abetting second-degree intentional murder and six counts of felony assault with a firearm. Another teen faces similar charges that were filed along with Burris' counts under a sealed warrant April 12. Charges say that the DNA testing of a cigarette butt led to his identification. He is not in custody and his whereabout are unknown.

Eyewitnesses saw the teens run away from the DIY punk venue Nudieland, where friends gathered Aug. 11 in the backyard of a house in the 2200 block of 16th Avenue S. for a show and birthday party. Gunfire erupted at 10:15 p.m. as a band was wrapping up for a crowd of 30 to 50 people.
