Amid calls for end to gun violence, 1 shot in N. Minneapolis

The shooter is still at large.

Within hours of a community festival aimed at curbing gun violence in Minneapolis, another person was found shot on the city's north side.

The Sunday morning shooting came about a day after a man died from a gunshot wound on Humboldt Ave in the same part of town.

In this latest incident, shots were reported via ShotSpotter in the area of 1800 Emerson Ave N. Officers arrived to find a man with a gunshot wound, according to Minneapolis police spokesman John Elder.

The victim was taken to the hospital with "serious injuries," but his current condition isn't known.

Police say no arrests have been made yet. 

This is the latest in a rash of gun violence in the Twin Cities, which in recent days has included a shooting outside the State Fair and the slaying of a St. Paul man coming out of a bible study class.

The shootings were the subject of the "Guns Down Love Up Unity Festival," which took place Saturday at Bethune Park in the Near North neighborhood:  

The free event, intended by organizers to "take a stand against gun violence and demand ‘Guns Down Love Up,’" offered a wide range of activities, including live music from Grammy Award winners The Sounds of Blackness.

"The time is now for the Twin Cities to come together and create space for conversation and action focused on ending gun violence and developing community-based solutions to gun violence," festival organizers said in a news release.
