Charges: Twin Cities firefighter was killed in furious crossfire between groups

The fatal shooting of a beloved Twin Cities firefighter occurred as two groups of people traded dozens of rounds of gunfire in a Minneapolis parking lot late at night, according to charges.

Marquise Trevone Hammonds-Ford, 28, of Monticello was charged in Hennepin County District Court last week with first-degree riot resulting in death and two illegal gun possession counts in connection with the shooting of 40-year-old Joseph C. Johns on May 5 behind the former Whiskey Junction bar in the 900 block of Cedar Avenue.

Hammonds-Ford was arrested Monday, appeared in court Tuesday afternoon and remains jailed in lieu of $800,000 bail. He's due back in court on June 10. Court records do not list an attorney for him.
