On June 30, police said Drew McGinley was shot and killed during a vigil remembering another person. Officials said the vigil was attended by some members of a street gang.

According to court records, McGinley got into some kind of fight with a man later identified as Deandre Turner before shots were fired, Fox 9 reported.

Since that night, police say Turner has been on the run until he was arrested on Nov. 10 on murder charges.

Fox 9 stated McGinley coached and helped organize a neighborhood baseball program for the Agape Movement in Minneapolis.

In a statement from the Agape Movement, they said, “While we mourn the loss of a loving man, father, brother, son, uncle, friend, coach, and community member. We celebrate his life and hope that it serves as an example to young people to work hard to make their dreams come true, to be willing to explore and push the limits, and to selflessly serve a cause greater than themselves,” Fox 9 reported.
