Minneapolis, Minnesota (News KROC-AM) – Four shootings in less than 12 hours in Minneapolis left one dead and half a dozen others injured.
The fatal shooting, which was the 72nd homicide in Minneapolis this year, was reported around 11:30 a.m. Friday night at a south Minneapolis residence. A press release from the Minneapolis Police Department says an altercation between two men “escalated into gunfire” and resulted in the death of one of the men.
The first shooting was reported around 3 p.m. Friday outside a business on East Lake Street near the interchange with Highway 55. MNCRIME.com says a man, woman and teenage boy suffered fatal injuries in what was described as a drive-by shooting.
Another man was rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries following a shooting around 9 p.m. MNCRIME.com said the shooting may have taken place during a carjacking.
Minneapolis police then responded shortly before 1:30 a.m. in downtown Minneapolis where two teenagers with gunshot wounds were found near the Minneapolis Central Library and just one block from the Minneapolis Fourth Police Station. MNCRIME.com reported that their injuries were not life-threatening and occurred when gunfire erupted during a physical altercation.
Last I heard, no one had been arrested for any of the shootings.
