A Robbinsdale man, Demahjay Sherief Sincere Hudson, age 22, has been sentenced in Redwood County Court for an assault with a firearm that occurred near Belview.

According to court documents, on June 6, 2021, at about 12:30 a.m., the Redwood County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to a rural farm site on a report that someone had been shot. Deputies arrived to find eight vehicles leaving the area, and five people standing around a wounded man lying on the ground by the machine shed. Witnesses stated several individuals with guns had been there, and one of them had shot the victim. Deputies located four 40 caliber bullet casings on the scene, and a nearby car had a bullet hole in the front passenger door.

The victim was transported to Redwood Falls for care, then airlifted to North Memorial Hospital.

At that point, investigators still did not know the identity of the shooter. Photos of the shooter were provided to law enforcement by people who had been present at the party. On June 14, officers from the Robbinsdale Police Department indicated Hudson might have been the person in the photos. On July 12, the Brooklyn Park Police Department stated a witness contacted them to state that her roommate’s boyfriend claimed he shot someone in Redwood County the previous month.

On Jan. 9, Demahjay Sherief Sincere Hudson pleaded guilty to felony first degree assault, and was sentenced to 94 months in the correctional facility in St. Cloud.
