Minneapolis: 1 Dead and 11 Wounded After 80 Rounds Were Fired Into Store Front


Twelve people were shot, including one fatally in a shooting in Minneapolis. Police said early Sunday.

Law enforcement first said ten people had been shot with 'various severity levels of injuries,' then corrected their total number upward in a tweet posted just after 3 a.m.

Eleven people survived the shooting with non-life-threatening injuries. Police said no arrests had been made, and the motive remains unclear.

Witnesses said that Hennepin Avenue south was also the same place where there were people looting and rioting in protest of the death of George Floyd while he was in the custody of a Minneapolis police officer. Some of the same businesses on the street just finished repairs from the riots and are now left with broken windows from the shooting.

According to DailyMail

One man is dead and 11 people suffered non-life-threatening wounds in a shooting in Minneapolis, police said early Sunday.

Law enforcement had first said 10 people had been shot with 'various severity levels of injuries,' but revised their total upward in a tweet posted just after 3 a.m.

The area is about three miles west of the Minneapolis commercial area and neighborhood hit by rioting in the wake of George Floyd´s May 25 death. Minnesota began allowing bars and restaurants to reopen with limited service on June 1 after some six weeks of closure because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Police had not yet released details on what led to the shooting which is reported to have involved people firing 'around 80 rounds' at each other. No one was in custody in connection with the shooting as of 4 a.m.

A preliminary investigation indicated that 'individuals on foot' started shooting around 12:30 a.m. and later fled the scene.  The victims have not been identified.
