Paris Allen Death – Paris Allen, a 19-year-old resident of Duluth, Minnesota, passed away tragically on Wednesday, August 2nd, 2023. He was announced dead by a family member in a social media post that says “As we all know, there was a shooting again. This time it hit home for my family. As we struggle to wrap our minds and hearts around this, I struggle to find words. My little cousin was 19.. he was just starting to see life, just starting to live. It just doesn’t feel real.
What was Paris Allen’s cause of death?
The two men who were detained in relation to the two shootings on Wednesday have been charged. The charges against Sanussi Tamsir Bangoura, 21, of Duluth, and Brandon Capone Williams-Gillard, 25, of Duluth include second-degree aiding and abetting murder, second-degree aiding and abetting assault, and drive-by shooting with intent to kill. According to the criminal complaint, a man who has a tumultuous relationship with both Bangoura and Williams-Gillard was chatting to a woman in a parking lot near 24th Avenue West and West 3rd Street on Wednesday just before 1:30 p.m.
The individual was found in the parking lot by Bangoura and Williams-Gillard, who then approached him. According to the authorities, Williams-Gillard got out of the car and smacked the man’s car’s hood with the suggestion that they “box.” The man however advised them to “box” down the block. At that point, the driver of the black Acura pulled away from the parking lot, followed by Bangoura and Williams-Gillard in the blue Chrysler.
Shooting in Duluth
According to the criminal complaint, the man called his companions to come outside and assist him in the altercation. On the 2500 block of West 2nd Street in Duluth, they first met. The man’s gang approached the blue Chrysler, according to the authorities, and one of the buddies punched Bangoura through the open driver’s side window. The blue Chrysler started to drive away almost instantly after the punch was fired. Bangoura fired several shots at the group while driving, reaching out the driver’s side window with a revolver.
