A Minnesota man is facing second-degree murder and second-degree assault charges after police say he fatally shot a woman who went to his house to help him.

Angelo Borreson, 56, allegedly told authorities he texted 51-year-old Angela Wynne on Dec. 31 and asked her to take him to get gas for his car. The next day, when Wynne showed up at Borreson's Roseau County home, he didn't immediately come outside, prompting her to honk her car horn and shout for him to hurry up, Twin Cities’ KSTP-TV reported.

According to a criminal complaint, Borreson told police he decided he wanted Wynne to leave, so he grabbed a loaded shotgun, went outside, and pointed it at her mini-van. Authorities allege Borreson fired the gun three times, blowing out the driver’s and passenger’s side windows.

It is yet to be reported what the nature of their relationship was beyond being acquaintances.

Cops say Borreson called 911 to report the shooting. Wynne, who suffered wounds to her head and shoulder, was later pronounced dead. Questioned by police, Borreson allegedly said he did not intend for the weapon to discharge, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported.

Borreson is being held in lieu of a $750,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court on Mar. 16.
