Minneapolis, Minnesota’s Levon Semaj Longstreet arrested in Decatur, Georgia

Erica McMillian, 39, of Minneapolis, Hennepin County, Minnesota, United States gave birth to her son Levon Semaj Longstreet in 2005. Aside from Minneapolis, she has lived in other parts of Minnesota including Brooklyn Center and Shakopee and she previously lived in Detroit, Michigan, USA.

Shortly before 8:00 p.m. of December 23, 2022, Longstreet and Taeshawn Adams-Wright, 18, of Minneapolis allegedly chased Johntae Raymon Hudson, 19, of Saint Paul, Ramsey County, Minnesota through a Nordstrom store on the first floor of the Mall of America in Bloomington, Hennepin County. Longstreet and Adams-Wright allegedly stood over Hudson and used semiautomatic handguns to fire eight rounds into the body of Hudson, who was lying on the floor returning fire.

The shooting appeared to have been precipitated by some kind of altercation between two groups of males based on surveillance video. A bystander, who was not identified, was grazed by a bullet.
