INVER GROVE HEIGHTS, Minn. -- Two people charged in connection with a weekend shooting death in Inver Grove Heights told investigators the shooting occurred because the deceased assaulted one of them during an "erotic massage," charging documents say. Logan Slack and Fotini West, both 25, are each charged with two counts of second-degree murder, Dakota County court documents show. Slack is the alleged shooter, while West alleges she was the assault victim. "Help me," a man on the call said, according to a criminal complaint. "They are trying to get into my house." The dispatcher said the man then went silent, and they believed the phone was outside. Responding officers found a shattered glass door at the back of the home and went inside. Bloody footprints led them to a dead man, identified as 43-year-old Michael Chang-Beom Lee, the complaint states. An autopsy showed he was shot to death. Two witnesses told police they saw an SUV leave the scene. Another officer spotted an SUV matching the witnesses' description nearby and stopped he driver, identified as Slack. A woman -- identified as West -- was also in the SUV, covered in blood, the complaint states. Wes told police she went to Lee's house and he assaulted her, then she called Slack and remembered him carrying her out of the house. According to the complaint, Slack told investigators he took West to Lee's house so she could give him an "erotic massage" for money. Slack said after some time West left the house and said Lee assaulted her and refused to pay. The complaint states Slack entered the home with a revolver, at which point Lee locked himself in a bathroom and called 911. Slack broke a hole in the bathroom door, through which Lee tried to grab West. At that point, Slack shot Lee. He pulled the trigger twice, but fired only one bullet due to an empty chamber.Slack and Wes then allegedly took Lee's phone and left. Investigators said a revolver and a bloody cellphone were found in Slack's car. Slack and West are both in custody. A third person was arrested Saturday but has not been identified or charged. Two people have been charged after a murder and assault during an alleged "erotic massage" in Inver Grove Heights. This message is being sent from INVER GROVE HEIGHTS, Minnesota. During a "erotic massage," the deceased allegedly assaulted one of the two suspects, according to court documents filed in the weekend shooting death in Inver Grove Heights. Documents from the Dakota County court system state that 25-year-olds Logan Slack and Fotini West have each been charged with two charges of second-degree murder. West claims she was the victim of an assault, while Slack is the accused shooter. A criminal complaint states that a male voice on the other end of the line pleaded, "Help me." "They're knocking on my door and trying to break in." The man then allegedly hung up, leading the dispatcher to believe he was outdoors with his phone. After arriving at the house, the police discovered a broken back window and entered. The lawsuit alleges that police followed bloody footsteps to the body of Michael Chang-Beom Lee, 43. The autopsy results confirmed that he had been shot. Two eyewitnesses reported seeing a sport utility vehicle (SUV) flee the site. A second police officer located a sport utility vehicle (SUV) matching the witnesses' description and pulled it over. The driver was recognized as Slack. According to the lawsuit, a woman named West was also present in the SUV and was covered in blood. Wes told police she was assaulted by Lee at his place, and that she phoned Slack, who she recalls bringing her out. The lawsuit states that Slack admitted to investigators that he paid Lee to give West a "erotic massage" at her home. Slack claimed that West fled the residence after a while, saying that Lee had beaten her and refused to pay. In the complaint, Lee is said to have said that when Slack came into the house with a pistol, he locked himself in the bathroom and called the police. Lee made an attempt to grab West via the bathroom door that Slack had smashed. Slack then fired at Lee. Even though he pushed the trigger twice, there was only one bullet that went off because the chamber was empty. Lee's phone was allegedly stolen by Slack and Wes, who then fled the scene. Police said they discovered a pistol and a bloodied cellphone in Slack's vehicle. Both Slack and West are currently under arrest. On Saturday, law enforcement detained three people, but only two have been formally charged.
