Dozens of people gathered at an intersection in North Minneapolis on Friday and Saturday to mourn, pray and protest gun violence.
They were there to honor a 2-year old and a 15 month-old who were hit by stray bullets while riding in the car with their father on Friday. The toddler died while the baby has been released from the hospital and is expected to recover from non-life threatening injuries.
The Hennepin County Medical Examiner confirmed Sunday night that the 2 year-old died from a gunshot wound to the chest.
Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau and Mayor Betsy Hodges visited the hospital, said MPR.
The police believe the shooting was between two groups of people who knew each other. No arrests have been made yet.
"I want justice for my baby and my son," Le'vonte King Jason Jones – the victims' mother – told KSTP.
