The suspect arrested in connection with a shooting in downtown Duluth was officially charged with the crime Thursday.

Levi Miller, 19, is facing one count of second-degree assault with a deadly weapon, which comes with a maximum sentence of seven years in prison.

The shooting happened Saturday, Sept. 5 around 2 a.m. on West 1st Street near Lake Avenue, which was right after a street fight down the block near 1st Avenue West.

According to the criminal complaint, witnesses say Miller was running and shooting a handgun multiple times.

Miller told police he was acting in self-defense after an acquaintance allegedly shot at him.

Police say that story does not add up because they only found shell casings from Miller’s weapon.

No one was injured.

Miller’s bail is set at $50,000.
