A 32-year-old man is sentenced to life imprisonment for shooting another man on Hibbing Street on Christmas day almost three years ago.

Jerome D. Span was convicted Tuesday in the District Court of St. Louis County for shooting and killing Jeriel “Jason” Macbeth, 34, and injuring then-25-year-old Jamian Stucky.

Spann was convicted in September by Judge Rachel Sullivan for one murder and two assaults. Convictions regarding the number of murders require life imprisonment without the possibility of parole.

“Every action in life has a spillover effect beyond our understanding,” St. Louis County lawyer Assistant Jessica Frarich said in a post-judgment statement. “What you can expect from Mr. Macbeth’s family today is that they can see justice being served and put this chapter of sorrow behind them, and they seek healing and peace. It means that you can turn the corner. “

On Christmas Day 2018, Span walked to the man on Hibbing Street in a residential area and said, “Jason, what’s wrong?” According to the prosecutor, he put three bullets into Macbeth’s body. Span also shot Stacky.

Hibbing Macbeth was taken to the hospital and died. Similarly, Hibbing’s Stacky survived.

According to court records, Span found Macbeth standing outside talking to his neighbor in a clear bid to score after the quarrel the night before. Span then stepped off the SUV, took the revolver out of the waistband, fired five bullets, three of which hit Macbeth.

According to the State Criminal Arrest Office, Span fled with an unidentified man in a car and was arrested three days later at his relative’s house in St. Paul.

Span’s criminal record in Minnesota includes two convictions for illegal gun possession.
