At Least 5 Wounded in Minneapolis Shootings
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Authorities say five people were wounded in two downtown Minneapolis attacks several blocks from one another after the bars closed down for the night.
Police say the shooters in Saturday's attacks remain at-large.
Department spokesman John Elder told The Star Tribune it isn't known if the attacks are linked, but they don't appear to be random.
Elder says the first happened shortly after 2 a.m. near N. 4th Street and Hennepin Avenue. Officers found two wounded males, who were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center. One had "very serious" wounds.
He says the second attack happened about an hour later nearby. A wounded man and woman were taken to HCMC with non-life-threatening wounds. Another man later turned up at a Robbinsdale hospital with non-life-threatening wounds from that attack.
