MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – One person is in stable condition after six people were injured in two shootings in downtown Minneapolis early Monday morning.

According to the Minneapolis Police Department, the first shooting occurred just before 1:15 a.m. outside the First Precinct, located on at 19 4th Street. Officers heard the sound of gunshots being fired and immediately responded.

Upon arrival, police located an adult male suffering from gunshot wounds in his leg and hand. He was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Another male took himself to HCMC and is also being treated for non-life threatening injuries to the leg.

Officers on the scene of the shooting recovered a handgun in a nearby parking lot.

Police said the second shooting occurred just before 1:30 a.m. at the intersection of Hennepin Avenue and South 4th Street.

Three adult males and one juvenile male were found suffering gunshot wounds.

All were transported to HCMC by ambulance. Three were treated for non-life threatening injuries, while the fourth victim, who was shot in the chest, is in stable condition.

According to police, officers arrested a suspect and located a handgun after a short chase on foot.

It is unclear if the suspect is involved in either shooting, or if the shootings are related.

Police said none of the suspects are cooperating. They believe the shooting is gang related.

Anyone with any information is asked to call 612-692-8477 or text their tip to 847411.

    What, pray tell, could be on 4th St. between N. 1st. Ave and Hennepin Ave. that is causing all this gun violence, even when there’s a Po-Leece substation right in the middle of the block? Well, there’s this:

    The Atrium – 316 Hennepin Avenue – 16 stories, 299 units.

    This is the only Minneapolis Public Housing high-rise in the Central Business District.

    Purely coincidental, right Mayor ‘Bike-Lane’ Betty?

    Did I say that right Queen J and Ditsy Holdges?

  3. “Police said none of the suspects are cooperating. They believe the shooting is gun related”

    You don’t want to cooperate? Fine, we’re not bringing you to the hospital.

    Black Lives Matter. Unless of course, it’s when black gangs are involved. Then it’s just business as usual.

    Mayor Betsy has a plan to reduce all this killing, shooting and armed robbery downtown. She says to just bare with her; because In just a few months when it gets too cold to comfortably lurk and spit outdoors in front of the police station downtown, we will see a dramatic drop.

    DFL/BLACK LIES Matter family values

    This is a culture issue. Cut off all welfare and they will starve or leave, problem will solve itself in 3 to 5 years.
