Shooting in Minneapolis leaves one dead, 11 injured

By Yaron Steinbuch, June 21, 2020 |

One man was killed and 11 people suffered non-life-threatening injuries when gunfire erupted late Saturday in Minneapolis, police said.

The shots were fired on the 2900 block of Hennepin Street, “where windows at a shoe store and the Uptown Theatre were apparently shot out,” Star Tribune reporter Libor Jany said in a tweet early Sunday.

He added in a separate tweet that a woman said her 23-year-old daughter had been shot twice, including a bullet that tore into her leg and struck her femur.

The name and age of the deceased weren’t immediately released, and it was unclear if anyone was arrested in the incident.

Minneapolis has been at the center of anti-racism and police brutality demonstrations that have spread across the country since George Floyd, a black man, died while being restrained by a white cop.

An initial tweet from police advised the public to avoid the area in Uptown Minneapolis, a commercial district that includes several bars and eateries.

Screams were heard on a video posted to Facebook that showed the aftermath at the chaotic scene.

Crowds gathered, with some crouched over victims sprawled on the pavement before police showed up to attend to them. Blood was visible on the ground after the victims were taken to local hospitals.

On June 1, Minnesota began allowing bars and restaurants to reopen with limited service after about six weeks of closure because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The location where the shooting occurred is about 3 miles west of the commercial area and neighborhood hit by rioting in the wake of Floyd’s May 25 death, which has sparked a move to overhaul the police force.

A majority of City Council members pledged support for dismantling a department that many community activists have called brutal and racist.
