Six arrested in connection to murder of 19-year-old Bloomington man

- Four people were arrested Saturday and two more were arrested on Sunday in connection to the murder of a 19-year-old man from Bloomington.

Two women, Megan Cater, 19, and Briana Martinson, 20, were booked Saturday along with two men, Maurice Verser, 33, and Noah Peterson, 20.

Another two suspects were taken into custody Sunday after separate stops in Minneapolis and St. Paul. 

The 19-year-old man was found dead from a gunshot wound in his apartment on Thursday. Police received a call around 10:44 p.m. to the Hampshire Hill apartments.

According to the original police report, evidence suggests a struggle had taken place prior to the shooting.

The arrests were made after numerous leads led officers to the four, but officials say they plan to continue following additional leads.

The name of the victim has not been released.
