Shooting at Minneapolis restaurant leaves 1 dead, 3 injured


Police are investigating a shooting at a crowded Minneapolis restaurant early Monday morning that killed a man and wounded three others.

Minneapolis police say around 1:30 a.m. multiple shots were fired through the front window of La Que Buena restaurant, 1611 E. Lake St., into a group of people inside.

When officers arrived, they found a 32-year-old man dead, the Star Tribune reports.

The three other men struck by gunfire, ages 19, 22 and 30, ended up at the Hennepin County Medical Center with non life-threatening injuries.

Police say the lone suspect fled the scene following the shooting.

A man leaving the restaurant early Monday told the Star Tribune that he suspects the shooting was gang related.

No arrests have been made. Anyone with information related to the incident is asked to text their anonymous tip to 847 411, enter MPD and the tip, or call the tipline at 612-692-TIPS (8477).
