Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - Bail has been set at $500,000 for the Rochester man charged with the most recent shooting in the city.
38-year-old Abdusalam Omar Hussein was arraigned today in Olmsted County Court on a second-degree assault charge. He is accused of breaking into a southeast Rochester apartment around 6:30 Sunday morning and shooting a 25-year-old man multiple times with the bullets striking the victim’s legs and a hand. Police reports indicate the victim told investigators he was sleeping when he was confronted by the intoxicated man, whom he knew by his street name “Dream.”
Hussein was arrested later in the day after he crashed his vehicle while being chased by law officers along White Bridge Road near Lake Zumbro. The criminal complaint says he admitted shooting the man and told investigators the victim had disrespected him at a party.
