Police say Freeman Jr. shot and killed 30-year-old Timothy Fields outside of the bar and restaurant on 11th Avenue South.
According to a MNPD press release, the investigation shows that Fields stepped out of the bar to get a cigarette when he got into a brief argument with a man (alleged to have been Freeman) standing beside a dark-colored Nissan Altima. Just after Fields was shot, the gunman got into the Altima and fled. Fields was rushed to a hospital where he died.
An arrest warrant charging Freeman with criminal homicide was issued Monday.
