    Man Given 30 Years for Fatal Shooting in West St. Paul

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A man accused of fatally shooting a West St. Paul father while the victim’s 2-year-old son slept beside him has been sentenced to 30 years in prison.

    Nathan Wesley McDonald, 23, pleaded guilty Aug. 21 to second-degree murder in the 2019 fatal shooting of Lawrence Terrance Renfro, 21, of West St. Paul.

    A co-defendant, Terrell Theo Payne, also pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and was sentenced to 25 years in prison on Sept. 10, the Pioneer Press reported.

    A friend alerted police after finding Renfro dead. His son was still sitting on the couch seven hours after Renfro was killed, authorities said.

    Payne told police that he and McDonald had gone to Renfro’s apartment early July 9, entered through the bedroom window and found Renfro and his son asleep in the living room.

    Payne said Renfro woke up and told them to leave, but McDonald shot Renfro multiple times.

    McDonald’s sister told investigators she had been living with Renfro, but moved out because he had been abusive.
