North Minneapolis shooting, crash injures 4


Four people were injured as the result of a shooting and vehicle crash in north Minneapolis Friday night. KARE reports one man suffered a gun shot wound while three others sustained injuries from the crash.

None of the four victims suffered life-threatening injuries in the incident that unfolded at about 8 p.m.

According to WCCO, a police officer noticed two vehicles driving erratically. Police say that when the vehicles stopped at the intersection of Lowry Avenue N. and Knox Avenue N., someone in one of the vehicles began firing upon the other vehicle.

Following the shooting, the victims' car collided with a third vehicle, the Star Tribune reports. Witnesses say they heard more than 10 shots and then heard a loud crash.

KSTP reports the person who was shooting continued to fire shots as the suspect vehicle drove away.

The shooting follows a string of recent violence in north Minneapolis. Last weekend, there were two stabbings in that part of the city.

There was also a rash of incidents over the Fourth of July holiday weekend. Two people were killed and at least three more injured after three separate shootings in north Minneapolis July 4 and 5. Two people were also stabbed on July 6. One of those victims died.

Since the beginning of the month, more officers have been added to patrol north Minneapolis neighborhoods.

"The police department isn't going to be the magic solution," said police spokesperson John Elder Friday in an interview with WCCO. "It's going to take the community, it's going to take a lot of things to come together."
