Man charged in fatal Minn. shooting

HASTINGS, Minn. — A 31-year-old man is charged with fatally shooting another man outside a Burnsville bar last weekend, but the suspect's former girlfriend remains missing.

Anthony Lee Nelson was charged Thursday with second-degree murder.

Nelson's current girlfriend, 24-year-old Ashley Conrade, is charged with aiding an offender, for allegedly harboring Nelson.

Police say Nelson, Conrade and 20-year-old University of Minnesota student Anarae Schunk were at Nina's Grill early Sunday. According to the complaint, Nelson told 23-year-old Palagor Jobi to stop talking to Conrade. A fight broke out, and witnesses say Nelson pulled a gun and fired multiple shots at Jobi.

Nelson, Conrade and Schunk jumped into a car and sped off.

Schunk is still missing. KARE-TV (http://kare11.tv/1bIZEWa ) reports Nelson is being held on $2 million bail, while Conrade's bail is set at $250,000.
