(St.Paul, MN) -- A Minneapolis man pleaded guilty today to a Hobbs Act robbery that resulted in the shooting death of a store clerk.

Court documents say 30-year-old Marlow Ramsay Carson robbed a Minneapolis Blue Sky Wireless and West Bend Furniture on April 27, 2021. The documents say Carson stuck a handgun under a barrier on the counter and demanded money from the store clerk. Court documents say that is when Carson shot the clerk in the chest before running out of the store and leaving via a getaway vehicle. The store clerk later died from their injuries. 

Carson has prior felony convictions and was prohibited from possessing firearms or ammunition at any time.  

Carson pleaded guilty to one count of interference with commerce by robbery and one count of possession of ammunition as a felon. Sentencing is yet to be scheduled.
