Weekend of violence in Minnesota: 5 dead, 11 injured

A 12-year-old girl is in critical condition after a shooting in Bloomington.

A man has been arrested and booked into jail following a late-night shooting in Bloomington that killed a woman and seriously injured a 12-year-old girl. 

The shots were fired just after 11 p.m. on the 8300 block of 15th Ave., followed by police arriving at the scene to find a woman dead inside a garage and a man yelling inside the home. 

As officers were attempting to communicate with the man, they were alerted to two other victims – a 12-year-old girl and a 29-year-old woman – who were on their way to a hospital with gunshot wounds. Both were shot in their front yard, which Bloomington PD spokesperson Mike Hartley says "is on the same block as the deceased victim." 

The 12-year-old was shot in the upper body and is in critical condition. The 29-year-old victim suffered gunshot wounds to her lower body and is in stable condition. Both are being cared for at HCMC. 

The man inside the house then fired multiple shots, with one officer returning gunfire. Hartley said the man "eventually was taken into custody and was uninjured." 

Police believe the man had a domestic relationship with the woman who was killed. 

The identities of the suspect and victims have not been released. No further information is currently available. 

In Minneapolis, there were two fatal shootings on Sunday. The first happened just after midnight Sunday when a man was found dead in a vehicle shortly after gunshots were reported on the 2400 block of N. Emerson Ave. The second deadly shooting in Minneapolis was reported at 7:36 p.m. Sunday on the 1800 block of N. Lowry Ave. 

Police arrived at the scene and found a man in a vehicle suffering from gunshot wounds. The victim, believed to be in his 40s, was immediately treated by officers at the scene before paramedics arrived and took over the lifesaving efforts. 

He was transported to North Memorial Health Hospital in grave condition and died a short time later. 

No arrests have been announced for either Minneapolis case, which are the 54th and 55th homicides of the year in the city. 

The Minneapolis killings happened after separate incidents in the city on Friday evening left four people wounded in shootings and another person critically injured in a separate stabbing. 

In Brooklyn Park, three people who shot in broad daylight in a parking lot of an apartment complex in Brooklyn Park. Numerous shots were reported around 4 p.m. outside the Park Haven Apartments, with one man fatally shot and two others injured.
