Public Memorial Service Thursday For Kelly Phillips

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- There will be a public memorial and candlelight service Thursday for the man who police say was killed by his ex at an Arden Hills gas station.

Kelly Phillips was shot multiple times at a gas station in Arden Hills on Aug. 11 and died from injuries in the incident.

A public memorial is set for Phillips at the St. Mark's Episcopal Cathedral in Minneapolis at 7 p.m. Thursday. He was buried last Saturday at his hometown of Mason City, Iowa.

Investigators say that they believe Hoffman shot Phillips. Hoffman was Kelly's ex-boyfriend.

Phillips was the vice president and general counsel for Boston Scientific, and he also owned the Lush Food Bar in Northeast Minneapolis. He was planning to marry his partner, Nathon Bailey, in two weeks.

On Tuesday, the Ramsey County Sheriff's Office issued Hoffman's revised wanted poster, which reflects the increased reward of $25,000 raised by the community and offered by Crime Stoppers.
