A father of six has died after he was one of three men shot during a "neighborhood dispute" in North Minneapolis on Memorial Day.
The Pioneer Press reports police were called about "a fight" in the 2700 block of 3rd St. N. just before 1:30 p.m., but by the time they arrived the fight had escalated, with a man found dead in the street and another taken to the hospital with a non-life threatening gunshot wound.
A third man was brought to Hennepin County Medical Center a short time later with critical gunshot injuries, the newspaper notes.
Family told WCCO the man killed in the incident was 34-year-old Larry Davis Sr., a father of six. His 15-year-old son was at the scene and told the station: "My dad — he was a good man. He always kept it straight forward with you. Like me and him, we could talk about anything."
The news station says the shooting happened during a family gathering on the holiday, but it has not been made clear how it resulted in three people being shot.
Police described it to the Star Tribune as a neighborhood dispute that erupted in gunfire, and though they say the shooting is not considered random, they have not disclosed what the dispute was about.
A witness told the newspaper she saw a man on the ground fire a weapon, which was followed by "more than two dozen shots" from a man and a woman who "quickly ran behind a nearby house."
Police continue to investigate. No information on suspects has been released at this time.
