A violent criminal who went missing after he was released for a funeral earlier this month was rearrested Tuesday by Hennepin County sheriff’s deputies, but he didn’t go down without a fight.
A Violent Offender Task Force began looking for Shevirio Kavirion Childs-Young, 18, nearly a month ago when he was temporarily released from jail to attend a relative’s funeral. He never came back.
Hennepin County Judge Regina Chu, known for presiding over the Kim Potter trial, was responsible for releasing Childs-Young.
On Tuesday, task force investigators located Childs-Young’s vehicle in north Minneapolis and used air support from the Minnesota State Patrol to follow him to a strip mall in Brooklyn Center.
He attempted to flee in his vehicle but police utilized a box maneuver to prevent his escape, according to a press release. Childs-Young was uncooperative and had to be removed from the vehicle.
He also had an infant and handgun magazines in the car with him when he attempted to make his escape. The infant didn’t suffer any injuries.
Court documents describe Childs-Young as a violent offender with a “lengthy juvenile delinquency history involving assault and weapons offenses.” He was charged Dec. 2 with assaulting a police officer and illegal possession of a firearm.
The exact nature of his juvenile criminal history is unknown because these records are private in Minnesota, but he was reportedly involved in a violent assault and kidnapping.
