At least 5 shot in Minneapolis; 1 fatally shot in St. Paul Friday night

Three separate investigations are underway in the Twin Cities.

Authorities in both Minneapolis and St. Paul are investigating three Friday night shootings, one of them fatal. 

The first happened at about 6:30 p.m. on the 1600 block of Washington Ave N. in Minneapolis. While officers responded to a shots-fired call in the area, two adults showed up at Hennepin County Medical Center with gunshot wounds.

Both suffered non-fatal injuries, a press release from the Minneapolis Police Department says.

A few hours later, at about 10:30 p.m., officers were dispatched to the 3400 Block of Emerson Ave N. to investigate a ShotSpotter activation as well as "numerous 911 calls" reporting gunshots in the area.

They were soon flagged down and directed to a juvenile male "sitting off to the side of a residence" with gunshot wounds; meanwhile, two other juveniles who had also been shot showed up at North Memorial hospital "via private transport."

All three victims were juveniles. According to the Star Tribune, they and a fourth victim had been shot at a house party.

About an hour later, in St. Paul, a person was shot to death on the 1600 block of Jackson Street, a couple miles north of downtown. 

When the male victim was found outside a multifamily residence, officers attempted lifesaving measures, but he died before he could be transported to a hospital, a news release says. 

No arrests have been made, and an investigation is now underway. Anyone with information is asked to call 651-266-5650.

This is the city's 12th homicide of the year.
