White Man Claims He Feared for His Life When He Gunned Down Minnesota Black Man

A Minnesota man was charged with second degree murder after he shot and killed a Black man following a minor traffic accident.

The shooting occurred after 39-year-old Douglas C. Lewis rear-ended Anthony J. Trifiletti in St. Paul, Minnesota, on May 1, according to The Star Tribune. The men pulled over and a shouting match ensued. Trifiletti eventually told friends who were riding in a separate vehicle to leave the scene.

Lewis succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead at a local hospital. Trifiletti called his father, who convinced him to return to the scene. He was arrested and charged with second-degree murder. Trifiletti remains in jail on a $1 million bond. He claims he acted in self-defense because he “thought he was going to die and was afraid for his life.”
