Man shot in nose at N. Minneapolis bus stop, arrests made after chase


A man standing by a bus stop in north Minneapolis was hit in the face by a bullet, in what may be the second injury of an innocent bystander in the neighborhood in as many days.

Minneapolis police told BringMeTheNews shots were fired at around 10:10 a.m. Thursday on the 3800 block of Freemont Avenue North.

A man was struck by a bullet, sustaining a non-life threatening wound to the face, which FOX 9's Tom Lyden – who was passing by the area at the time – reports hit him in the nose.

After the shots were reported, police noticed a suspicious vehicle in the area and chased it to the north metro, apprehending two suspects who have been arrested and are now being questioned to see if they were involved, police told BringMeTheNews.

Police are not confirming whether the man shot was an innocent bystander, but Lyden spoke with officers on the scene who say that was the case.

If so, it would be the second confirmed incident of an innocent bystander being hit by a stray bullet in north Minneapolis in as many days.

Police said someone was shot at the intersection of 33rd and Eldridge Avenue North on Wednesday. The victim also suffered non-life-threatening wounds.
