Police have said that people in the home where 5-year-old Nizzel George was shot had been involved in a dispute with residents of a house a couple of blocks away, where a drive-by shooting had been reported hours earlier, the Pioneer Press reports.
But the family of the 5-year-old denied police assertions that someone in their house has been involved in a neighborhood dispute with his killer, the Star Tribune says.
Neighbors don't feel safe, MPR reports. The boy's mother is furious about the shooting, MPR says. "I had my baby at 14 years old. That's my only baby," said Christina Banks, 20. "They took my only baby away from me."
The Associated Press reports another vigil for 5-year-old Nizzel George will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday in Minneapolis. His funeral will take place at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.
