WI Man Killed In MN

Posted:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A 29-year-old Minnesota man is charged with murder for allegedly intentionally driving onto a Minneapolis sidewalk and striking a group of pedestrians -- killing a man from Wisconsin and injuring two other people.

A criminal complaint filed Monday says Timothy Ayman Bakdash told a witness he had "no remorse" for the April 15 crash that killed 23-year-old Benjamin Van Handel of Appleton.

Bakdash allegedly said he was drinking at the Library Bar in Minneapolis and got into an argument with four people. He continued to argue outside with one man, who walked away.

The complaint says Bakdash got into his vehicle, went the wrong way on a one-way street and drove onto the sidewalk. He allegedly said he intended to hit and kill three of the pedestrians.

It was not immediately clear whether he had an attorney.
