Bail set at $1 million in Owatonna McDonald’s shooting

OWATONNA, Minn. — A man accused of shooting at an occupied vehicle outside a McDonald’s restaurant in Medford is being held on $1 million bail.

A criminal complaint says Jason Paul Krieg fired the shots at a person waiting for a ride outside McDonald’s because of a drug debt. It says Krieg fired six shots into the hood of a vehicle after the targeted man jumped inside. As the man’s mother began driving away, authorities say Krieg fired an additional shot into the front passenger door. The man and his mother weren’t hit.

The People’s Press (http://bit.ly/wtgqi5) says Krieg turned to two people in the Steele County courtroom Thursday and called them “snitches.” The prosecutor used that incident in his argument for high bond. Krieg was arrested Wednesday, two days after the shooting outside McDonald’s.
