More bloodshed in Minneapolis as multiple incidents left eight people shot and one victim stabbed between 10 p.m. and 2:15 a.m. Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.
Five of the eight shooting victims were struck by gunfire on the 200 block of West Broadway Avenue in north Minneapolis around 1 a.m. Described by police as a "chaotic scene," officers arrived and found adults who'd been shot. Both were transported to Hennepin Healthcare by ambulance while three other gunshot victims arrived at Hennepin Healthcare on their own.
All five – two women and three men – suffered injuries that are not life-threatening.
MPD said the shooting stemmed from a verbal altercation.
In a separate incident that happened on the 3700 block of North Morgan Avenue, two juveniles were shot while in a car following what police say was a traffic altercation. After they were struck, the shooter fled while the victim vehicle crashed into several parked cars.
One of the juveniles was taken to North Memorial Health Hospital while the second victim had superficial injuries and was picked up by family.
The first shooting of the night was reported at 10:14 p.m. when a man sitting in a car on the 2200 block of West Broadway Avenue and was approached by an unknown assailant and shot. He suffered what is believed to be a survivable gunshot wound and was transported to Hennepin Healthcare.
At 2:11 a.m., police were alerted to a stabbing that happened in the area of South Portland Avenue and East Lake Street in south Minneapolis. Officers couldn't find the victim when they arrived, though the man walked into Abbott Northwestern Hospital seeking treatment a short time later.
MPD said the stabbing happened after two men got into an argument over money.
As of this writing, no arrests have been made in connection to any of the incidents.
