A Minneapolis teen is charged with second-degree murder in a fatal shooting in Cedar-Riverside.

Shire Basal, 16, is accused of shooting 32-year-old Liban Abdulahi multiple times last Friday. It was one of three deadly shootings in Minneapolis last weekend.

The Hennepin County attorney's office is requesting he be charged as an adult.

According to court documents, Abdulahi parked near the Lucky Dragon restaurant where Basal and his friends were shooting a rap video.

Basal initially told investigators he did not shoot anyone, but later admitted to the crime and said he and Abdulahi had an altercation about a month ago.
