Boswell indictment

On November  6, 2019, a grand jury in the District  of Minnesota indicted  Shelby Gene Boswell  in federal court with possession and discharge of a firearm  by a convicted felon. Following the October 18, 2019, incident  where Mr. Boswell  is alleged  to have fired a rifle into the head of another  man during a funeral ceremony  at the Fond duLac Head Start Building, the Carlton  County  Attorney's Office (CCAO)  charged  Mr. Boswell  with numerous State of Minnesota offenses. The CCAO and local law enforcement worked closely  with the United States' Attorney's Office during  the ongoing investigation. Federal prosecution provides  the greatest  consequences for Mr. Boswell 's alleged crimes. As a result of the federal indictment, State charges have been dismissed at this time. The CCAO is committed to prosecution that maximizes the l ong-term  safety of our community. To that end, the CCAO collaborates with law enforcement and prosecution agencies at all levels of government. The CCAO  thanks all entities that assisted in this matter  for their immediate, professional and thorough  response.
