The family of the boy who was shot and killed earlier this week in north Minneapolis says it was the second time in a week he had been shot.
The family tells WCCO that 16-year-old Jawon Osborne was shot in the leg just last week. He was shot to death on Monday while walking to his mother's house. Police don't have any suspects in custody.
KARE 11 reports Osborne is the third teen gunned down on the north side in a month.
Gov. Mark Dayton told MPR News last month that he's willing to send in the State Patrol to help curb the violence in north Minneapolis.
The Star Tribune reports that Minneapolis police hope that with school back in session, hallway chatter will help solve the cases. Police Chief Tim Dolan says 'kids talk' and that helps solve a lot of cases.
Anyone with information should call the Minneapolis Police Tips Line at 612-692-TIPS.
