3 accused of jumping on, killing man in Minneapolis

MINNEAPOLIS — Three people are accused of killing a man in Minneapolis by jumping on and beating him.

The Star Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/YGQzH1) police say that witnesses reported seeing three males taking turns jumping from a retaining wall onto Kerry Duane Scott's chest and abdomen “like a trampoline” on Nov. 17. Officers found Scott bleeding from the head and paramedics pronounced him dead.

Minneapolis police said Monday that 33-year-old Tony Baker, of Brooklyn Center, has been arrested and charged in Hennepin County District Court with second-degree murder.

A criminal complaint alleges Baker hit the 41-year-old with a garbage can, shovel and rake.

A 25-year-old and a juvenile were charged earlier in Scott's death.

Court documents say at least one of the men accused Scott of stealing something before the attack.
