3 charged in fatal robbery of 17-year-old

MINNEAPOLIS - Three people have been charged with murder in a robbery turned fatal that killed a 17-year-old two weeks ago.

According to the criminal complaint:

Austin Young, 17, was found in the driver's seat of a crashed SUV on 26th and Knox Avenues North at about 10:25 p.m. on June 13. He had been fatally shot behind the left ear.

A witness on the scene told police he had been in the SUV with Young and two women, and one of the women wanted to buy marijuana. The man told police that the women left and came back with three men. The two women got into the rear of the vehicle along with one of the men, Armajea Warren, who then attempted to rob Young at gunpoint, according to the complaint.

The complaint states that the witness, who was in the passenger's seat next to Young, pushed Warren's gun away. At this point one of the other men, Terry Gibson, 18, pulled out a gun and shot Young and then fled the scene, according to the complaint.

The witness told police that he then reached over to drive the SUV away until it crashed.

Investigators say they retrieved messages from the phone one of the women, Sequoia Bulson-Bratton, 18, telling Gibson that they were at the planned location.

Warren told police that they targeted Young because the other young woman had seen him carrying a significant amount of money.

Warren and Gibson were both charged with second-degree murder earlier this month. Bulson-Bratton turned herself in Tuesday night and is now also charged with second-degree murder.
