Burnsville mom says son, 8, was killed by his father while boy tried to keep her from being shot

A Burnsville woman said her 8-year-old son was shot to death by his father in their home last week while the boy was trying to protect her.

Amir Demarion Harden was shot in the head and neck on June 5 and died Sunday at HCMC, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office said. The father, 30-year-old Danair Harden, then was shot in an apparent attempt to kill himself, police said.

Danair Harden was in court earlier that day on charges that he assaulted the boy's mother, Cherish Edwards, on May 30. He was arrested, jailed then freed on $4,000 bail in the afternoon before the shooting. Prosecutors asked for bail to be set at $10,000.
