Suspect charged after shooting food-delivery driver in Cottage Grove

Authorities say a man accused of shooting a delivery driver in Cottage Grove on Tuesday night has turned himself in.

Otis Donnell Shipp, 48, of Cottage Grove, surrendered to officers at the Washington County Jail on Wednesday evening, according to a post on the Cottage Grove Police Department’s Facebook page.

Washington County Attorney Pete Orput said Shipp was charged Wednesday with second-degree attempted murder in Washington County District Court.

Cottage Grove police say Shipp shot a food-delivery driver at around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday in the driveway of a townhome in the 8700 block of Ironwood Avenue, where the driver was leaving an order.

Citing a criminal complaint in the case, WCCO-TV reported that an armed man approached the driver, who asked what he was doing.

Before the Uber Eats driver could respond, the gunman opened fire, fired multiple shots and hit the driver in the left shoulder.

Surveillance video from the neighborhood showed the driver shouting that he was a delivery driver as he fled.

The driver, who drove to a nearby holiday gas station and asked for help, was taken by ambulance to St. Paul’s Regions Hospital, having been treated for injuries described as non-life-threatening.

Surveillance video also shows a car chasing the driver. Investigators later determined that the car was from Shipp, who lived in the neighborhood where the shooting took place, and that the delivery drove the driver to the gas station, but did not go inside.
