The subsidized housing complex in south Minneapolis, run by the Little Earth of United Tribes, is the heart of Minneapolis' American Indian population, though its almost 1,000 residents come from a diverse range of backgrounds.

Wednesday's shooting is not the first of its kind in recent times. A 19-year-old man was shot dead at the complex this past March, prompting the Little Earth Residents Association President Jolene Jones to call for an end to "the violence and the guns."

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey issued a statement following Wednesday's shooting, saying "this violence cannot be tolerated."

“Gun violence is not acceptable in any of our neighborhoods, and Little Earth is no exception," he said. "[Minneapolis Police] Chief Arradondo and I will be working with Little Earth leadership and residents to not only strengthen the community’s safety — but also provide additional attention to the challenges that confront the community."
