2 dead, 4 injured in 3 north Minneapolis shootings

Posted: Updated:
MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) - Three separate shootings killed two people and left four injured during the Fourth of July holiday in north Minneapolis. Details about the murders are still unfolding but police have only made one arrest.

3RD STREET

“Next thing you know I heard gun shots,” said Linda Williams, a young shooting victim's neighbor. “It makes me feel real unsafe around here.”

Minneapolis police confirmed that Williams' neighbor, a 23-year old woman was killed in the shooting. Another woman also shot on the scene was taken to North Memorial Hospital with serious injuries.

DUPONT AVENUE NORTH

Another shooting took place on the 3400 block of Dupont Avenue North where one man was killed and two others -- who are expected to survive -- were shot. The man who died, Cabrie Devon Young, 28, was found inside a home as officers arrived at the scene. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office confirmed he died as a result of a gunshot wound to the chest. 

46TH AND LYNDALE

A man was shot and brought to an area hospital. His condition is currently unknown.

POLICE CHIEF: PUT GUNS DOWN

Minneapolis police chief Janee Harteu urged residents to put their guns down following the weekend's shootings. In total, 16 people have been killed in Minneapolis, 11 on the north side of the city. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner is expected to release the names of the murder victims on Monday.

“The late evening hours of July 4th and the early morning hours of July 5th were particularly violent in our city. Our officers responded quickly and professionally. We take these incidents very seriously and are working diligently to apprehend those responsible for these senseless deaths. It is important for the residents of Minneapolis to know that the two homicides we are investigating are not random and are in no way related. Having said that, we are concerned about the level of violence and urge people to put their guns down and find another way to resolve personal conflicts.”
