2 shootings in Minneapolis Friday night: 2 dead, 3 injured

One shooting was in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood, the other off of Washington and Broadway avenues.

Two people were killed and three others injured in two separate shootings in Minneapolis on Friday night. 

The first shooting occurred in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis as shots fired were reported in the 1800 block of Riverside Ave. at 7:20 p.m. Upon arrival to the scene officers found a man dead inside a vehicle parked behind Hard Times Cafe. 

The identity of the victim will be released at a later time by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office. 

Police say there were several people in the area at the time of the shooting and they are working with community leaders in the neighborhood as the homicide investigation continues. 

Second shooting

Later Friday, at 11:45 p.m., officers from the Fourth Precinct responded to a call reporting shots fired near the 2000 block of Washington Ave. N., which is located west of the Mississippi River near the intersection of Washington Ave. N. and West Broadway Ave. 

Officers arrived to the area and discovered a man dead on the sidewalk and another man suffering from a gunshot wound, who was transported to North Memorial Health Hospital for treatment. His injury was not considered life-threatening. 

Police did not specify if the cause of death or identify the victim.

Police then learned that two other victims – a woman and a man – went to area hospitals with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds. The woman went to Fairview Riverside for treatment and the man went to North Memorial Health Hospital for care. 

Suspects in the shooting ran from the scene before police arrived, but homicide detectives are working with road officers who spoke to people in the area and are following up on leads.
