Feds file charges in funeral shooting


November 15, 2019

The Carlton County Attorney’s Office announced Friday that the man at the center of a shooting at a funeral last month is being charged in federal court, rather than state court.

Shelby Gene Boswell, 28, of Hugo, Minnesota was accused of shooting and injuring another man in the back of the head at a funeral ceremony Oct. 18 in the Head Start gymnasium on the Fond du Lac Reservation. Boswell was charged with both first- and second-degree assault, being a felon in possession of a firearm as well as second- and third-degree drug possession in 6th District Carlton County Court on Oct. 21.
