1 Killed, 1 Injured in South Minneapolis Shooting
An overnight shooting killed one man and injured another in South Minneapolis.
Police say the shooting happened on the 3600 block of Columbus Avenue around 11:15 p.m.
At this point, no suspects have been arrested, but police say the public is not in danger.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Minneapolis Police Tip Line at 612-692-8477.
The homicide is the fifth of the year in the third precinct and the 16th in all of Minneapolis. More violence happened in the same neighborhood less than a month ago; this latest homicide is about one block away from the city’s 12th homicide of the year, which happened June 17 when 35-year-old Daniel Maniece was killed in a shooting on the 3500 block of Chicago Avenue South.
At this time last year, there had been two homicides in the third precinct and 14 citywide.
