US shooting leaves one dead, 11 injured
MINNEAPOLIS: One man is dead and 11 people suffered non-lifethreatening wounds in a shooting in Minneapolis, police there said.
Minneapolis police had first said 10 people had been shot with “various severity levels of injuries,” but revised their total in a tweet posted just after 3 a.m local time. No one was in custody in connection with the shooting as of 4 a.m., according to a police release that said preliminary investigation indicated that “individuals on foot” started shooting around 12:30am and later fled the scene.
An initial tweet from Minneapolis police advised the public to avoid the area in Uptown Minneapolis, a commercial district that includes several bars and restaurants. Minnesota began allowing bars and restaurants to reopen with limited service on June 1 after some six weeks of closure because of the coronavirus pandemic. Photos on social media showed windows at the Landmark’s Uptown Theatre and another storefront shot out. AP
