Two families are now planning funerals after a violent weekend in Minneapolis, while others are questioning whether enough is being done to prevent crime. “It’s something that needs to stop as soon as possible,” community and peace activist K.G. Wilson, from North Minneapolis, said. Two separate shootings in North Minneapolis over the holiday weekend left one woman and one man dead.
For eight years, K.G. Wilson worked with troubled youth and helped the families of victims taken by violence cope with the loss.
Churchgoers and concerned citizens across Minnesota and the country wore hooded sweatshirts Sunday to honor a teenager shot dead in his Florida neighborhood.
