Good Samaritan shot, killed in St. Paul while trying to help drivers involved in crash


ST. PAUL, Minn. (FOX 9) - A good Samaritan was shot and killed Monday night while he was trying to help two drivers who were involved in a multi-vehicle crash in St. Paul, Minnesota, police said.

The crash and fatal shooting occurred around 10 p.m. at the intersection of Edgerton Street North and Case Avenue East. When officers arrived, they found four vehicles that had been involved in the crash and a victim, identified as Javier Yanez, 31, of St. Paul, suffering from gunshot wounds. Yanez was pronounced dead at the scene.

Lionel Keejuan Eaton, 27, has been charged with second-degree murder and third-degree murder in connection to the shooting. Eaton was driving one of the vehicles involved in the crash. He was taken into custody at the scene.

Witnesses told police the suspect, an adult male, was driving southbound on Edgerton Street when he rear-ended another vehicle. The collision caused the vehicle to cross into the northbound lane and crash into an unoccupied parked vehicle. Meanwhile, the suspect's vehicle continued southbound and struck an unoccupied parked car on the northwest corner of Edgerton and Case.

Yanez arrived at the scene and attempted to help the suspect and the driver who had been rear-ended. The suspect then began to shoot from inside his vehicle and struck the victim in the head.
