3 women injured in overnight Minneapolis shooting

Author:

Just hours after Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau urged residents to put down their guns, three women were injured in north Minneapolis shootings overnight.

Police say the women do not have life-threatening injuries, but they were in serious condition at North Memorial Medical Center, KSTP reports.

No arrests were immediately made after the shootings that happened at about 1:30 a.m. in the area of North 36th Avenue and Freemont Avenue North, according to media reports.

A WCCO/Associated Press report said that all three women had been shot.

Police said the shooting does not appear to be random, according to that report.

KARE 11's Nate Anderson tweeted from the scene:

And from KARE 11's Melissa Colorado:

Following a weekend that included three shootings in Minneapolis that left two people dead, Harteau and Mayor Betsy Hodges walked the streets of north Minneapolis Tuesday to call attention to crime-fighting efforts, FOX 9 reported.

"The violence in North Minneapolis must stop," said Mayor Hodges, who met with leaders on the north side, according to WCCO. “We need to pull out every stop we can to end it as quickly as possible.”

Two people were killed and at least three more injured after three separate shootings in north Minneapolis Friday night and Saturday morning. Two people were also stabbed early Sunday.

In another FOX 9 report, Harteau said the city has put more officers in the violent areas of north Minneapolis, which has led to more gun seizures.

Shooting calls in the 4th precinct have risen about 36 percent compared to last year, the chief said, and officers there have seized 258 guns – compared to 192 in all of last year.
