Mustafa Bush was booked into the Olmsted County Jail on Wednesday at 7:49 p.m. He is awaiting arraignment. A second-degree murder charge is a felony.

This is not Bush’s first run-in with the law. He was convicted of second-degree murder without intent while committing a felony in May of 2006. He along with Parnell Johnson and Audumn Richardson were convicted in the shooting death of Cory Richardson. Richardson was 25 years old at the time. That crime occurred in Northwest Rochester and those details are below.
