Cass Lake Mn, The man accused of being involved in a shooting incident at Cass Lake Aug. 30 was sentenced April 20 in Cass County District Court to 60 months in prison for being a felon who illegally possessed a handgun after being convicted of a felony violent crime within the last 10 years.
Judge John P. Smith gave Clarence James Dickens, 50, Minneapolis, credit for jail time already served. The judge dismissed felony first- and second-degree assault charges.
The court complaint filed against Dickens states he has multiple prior convictions for crimes of violence. As a convicted felon, he is ineligible to possess a firearm.
According to the complaint, Dickens was one of four people who arrived in a vehicle at the town homes about 3 a.m. in Cass Lake to visit a relative. An altercation then ensued between the occupants of the vehicle and a group of individuals who were present in the parking lot.
Michael Jones, 25, of Cass Lake, and Thomas Jones, 26, of Rosemount, suffered gunshot wounds, according to Cass County Sheriff's Department. The victims were brothers, who told officers they were walking past the area and not involved in the altercation.
The court complaint states Michael Jones was treated for gunshot wounds to his hand and leg at Cass Lake Public Health Services Hospital. Thomas Jones was airlifted to a Duluth hospital for treatment of a gunshot wound to his groin area.
The suspect vehicle reportedly headed south from Cass Lake following the incident.
Officers located the vehicle reportedly involved in the shooting at Pine River and pursued the vehicle on Highway 371 to the city of Pequot Lakes, where the vehicle was stopped. Dickens was one of four occupants in the vehicle. H e was detained and taken to Cass County Detention Center.
At some point between Cass Lake and Walker after those in the fleeing vehicle saw multiple squad cars heading north, witnesses told officers Dickens placed a handgun in a ditch by a road sign along the highway. Officers later recovered a 9 mm handgun from that ditch.

Cass Lake, Minn. It's hard to find anyone in the Cass Lake area who hasn't in some way been affected by recent violence. That includes the town's mayor, Elaine Fleming. Last month, Fleming's 20-year-old son was shot in the hand while standing around a campfire just north of Cass Lake. Two other young men were also shot. One of them, 17-year-old Brandon Humphrey, was killed. Fleming says no one feels safe anymore.
"There's this war going on in our community," said Fleming, "and we're fighting ourselves and we're hurting each other.
Personally affectedJust a few weeks after Fleming's son was shot, there was more violence. The severely beaten body of 23-year-old Samuel Dow was discovered in the basement of a Cass Lake home. That was just a day after 20-year-old Michael James Littlewolf was found beaten and unconscious on a Cass Lake street. Littlewolf later died at a local hospital.
It isn't just homicides that are wearing people down in Cass Lake. If you read the local newspapers, it seems a week doesn't go by without an alcohol related car crash or some other violent misfortune. Just a few days ago, a young man was struck and killed by a semi-truck on Highway 2. Local authorities say it appears the man may have thrown himself in front of the vehicle.
Violence in the Cass Lake area takes many form, but in nearly every case, it's a violent act that's Indian against Indian. Mayor Elaine Fleming says people are afraid of what will happen next.
"I'm afraid for my son," Fleming said. "I'm not just afraid for my son, but I'm afraid for other sons and the daughters that are out there. At this point, the way that we've been touched, it's hard to put down your fear, because things are not all right. Something is really seriously wrong here that we have to fix."
Violence on Indian reservations isn't unusual. National statistics show native people on reservations are two and a half times more likely to be a victim of violent crime than the general population. Few people on the reservation have been as personally affected by violence as Ernestine Morgan-Johnson.
In 2001, Morgan-Johnson's son shot and killed her ex-husband and stabbed two others. In 2003, Morgan-Johnson's alcoholic sister fatally stabbed the sister's boyfriend. And just this past September, Morgan-Johnson's brother-in-law was stabbed to death by his next door neighbor over a strange incident involving a dog fight. Morgan-Johnson says she knows very well that the community is hurting.
Heartbroken"No words can take away or describe the pain that these people are going through, the mothers, the grandmothers, the sisters," said Morgan-Johnson. "Let's take control of what's going on here. Let's stand together as a nation and pray for these people, these individuals that have hurt."
The recent string of violence in Cass Lake was the last straw for Leech Lake Tribal Chairman George Goggleye. The ex-marine recently declared war on what he called the thugs who are committing violence and trying to destroy the community.
Goggleye says he thinks many of the perpetrators are involved with gangs and drugs. He says there are multiple layers of complex social problems on the reservation. But at the heart of it all is a loss of cultural identity.thing to change things.
"The leadership has to respond to that, and maybe because of that, they will do something," Dunn said. "My God, they have to be able to see that this is an unbearable situation. We really can't stand this. This is too hard."
It's been especially hard on Dunn. It was her grandson, Brandon Humphrey, who was shot and killed just a few weeks ago.
