3 Charged in Fatal Shooting of Minnetonka Teen

16-year-old shot and killed Sunday, Sept. 25

Three people have been charged with murder in the death of a Minnetonka High School student during an alleged robbery in St. Paul.

Ramsey County prosecutors say 16-year-old Samantha Burnette was fatally shot after fighting back when her sister was pistol-whipped in an alley Sunday. The prosecutors have accused a 29-year-old woman of arranging her ex-boyfriend to rob her friends.

The three people charged Tuesday in the incident are Kalisa Chardale Smith, who was friends with Burnette’s sister; Smith’s former boyfriend, Christopher Rayshawn Calloway; and Calloway’s friend, Davonte Bobo. They’re each charged with two counts each of aiding and abetting second-degree murder and first-degree aggravated robbery.

It wasn’t immediately clear if the suspects have attorneys.

Burnette lived with her grandmother in Minnetonka and was spending the weekend with her mother and sister, who are St. Paul residents.
