MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Police are investigating what led up to a pair of drive-by shootings in north Minneapolis early Saturday morning and if they are related.

Authorities responded to the first shooting at about 12:30 a.m. Saturday on the 2900 block of Aldrich Avenue North. Police said a juvenile female was shot in the ankle while inside the home. Around 10 gun shots were fired into the front of the house from the outside, according to police. There are no suspects in custody at this time.

An officer at the scene said the victim was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive.

Around 5 a.m., police received a call about damage to property at another home on that same block. It was another drive-by shooting that was across the street from the first incident. Nobody was injured in that shooting, where at least six gun shots were fired. Authorities are not sure if the home was occupied at the time of the shooting. There are no suspects in custody for this shooting either.

Police aren’t saying if the two incidents are related at this time. They both remain under investigation at this time. The shootings happened just three blocks from where 3-year-old Terrell Mayes Jr. was killed inside his home back in December.

Anyone with information about the incidents is asked to call Minneapolis Police.

    And once again, weeks after the last fatality due to youth shootings, it happens again; and once again, no one speaks up to the police.
    The neighborhood knows who the bad guys are, but they say nothing.
    They deserve the neighborhood they have. They’re the CAUSE, and they offer no solutions. Yet they cry and complain and do nothing. Think about it, they value their silence MORE than they value the lives and safety of their own children. If I was one of their children, I’d be looking my mother or father and asking, “Don’t you care about me?”

    I dont live in MN but wonder what the hell is this particular section of town trying to do? Are the teens/parents. and violators determined to kill off each other? If so, put a big barrier between them and the rest of society and post a sign to stay out, and to ignore gunshots! My gosh, I cant believe the violence.Doesnt local law enforcement have an anonymous tip line where persons can provide information?
