Publish date:

Five people were injured with gunshot wounds – one critically – after an incident in north Minneapolis on Thursday afternoon.

Minneapolis police say they were called to the area of 34th Avenue North and Girard Avenue North at around 4:45 p.m. to reports of multiple shots fired.

When they got there, four victims were found on the scene. They were all taken to a hospital by ambulance, with the fifth victim showing up at hospital later.

Four of the victims have non-life-threatening injuries, but one is in a critical condition.

Minneapolis PD spokesperson Sgt. Darcy Horn said there appears to have been an argument among group of people that then turned physical, before shots were fired.
