(Black) St. Cloud man fatally shot WHITE FEMALE coworker who rejected his SEXUAL advances
According to a criminal complaint, investigators found an argument over text messages between Hammond and Carpenter the night before the shooting, with Hammond stating that she didn’t want to be touched or manipulated by Carpenter and she didn’t want him to make things uncomfortable at work.

Other coworkers told police that Carpenter had made repeated advances toward Hammond over the past month, but his advances were rejected.

As police spoke with the coworkers, officers learned Carpenter had called and was talking to another coworker. Officers then learned Carpenter’s location and arrested him.

Inside Carpenter’s vehicle, officers found a 9 mm pistol with a loaded magazine. The complaint states the style and brand of the bullets matched the shell found outside the business.

When talking to police, Carpenter admitted he didn’t sleep well the night before because the text argument with Hammond upset him. He also made several contradictory statements but didn’t admit to shooting Hammond, according to the documents.

A Minnesota woman was gunned down outside her workplace for “repeatedly” rejecting a co-worker’s relentless advances.
Nicole Hammond, 28, died in the parking lot of her St. Cloud workplace on Oct. 24 after co-worker Jordan Carpenter shot her in the neck, police said.
Carpenter, 36, fled but was tracked down about three hours later hiding in a home in nearby Sauk Rapids, according to a statement by St. Cloud police.
The suspect was in possession of a handgun and was arrested on murder charges.
The woman had texted the creepy co-worker one day before her slaying and insisted that she did not want to be touched or manipulated by him, a probable cause statement obtained by the Kansas City Star revealed.
Hammond had “repeatedly” rejected Carpenter’s romantic advances in the month leading up to the violent murder, police said, asking him “not to make things uncomfortable at work.”

“Unfortunately, we had no idea,” said Dubow. “Any time there is anything that requires our intervention, we step in. But in this case, we had no indication that there was anything awry.”
Carpenter did not admit to the slaying, according to the probable cause statement, but claims he had been walking toward Hammond’s car when he heard the gunshot.
The alleged killer told cops he ran away because he was “too traumatized” after seeing his love interest’s body.

“He didn’t render aid, go to work, nor did he call 9-1-1,” police said.
One of Hammond’s supervisors remembered her as a “beautiful, smart, determined young woman.”
