1 Dead, 11 Injured In Uptown Shooting Following Night Of Gun Violence In Metro Area

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO/AP) — Minneapolis police are investigating after a shooting in the Uptown area left one person dead and 11 others injured overnight. The incident was one of many reported shootings overnight.

According to police, on Sunday morning at 12:37 a.m., numerous 911 calls reported multiple people shot on the 2900 block of Hennepin Avenue South.

There, officers found several people suffering from gunshot wounds. Police say a preliminary investigation has determined that individuals on foot started shooting in the mid-2900 block of Hennepin Ave. S. and moved north. People ran from the scene and the suspects also fled.

Police say a total of 12 victims — all adults — suffered gunshot wounds. One of the injured, a man, died at the hospital. The remaining 11 victims suffered non-life threatening injuries, according to police. No one is in custody at this point. Five detectives have been brought in to investigate.

The area is about 3 miles west of the Minneapolis commercial area and neighborhood hit by rioting in the wake of George Floyd’s May 25 death after being arrested by Minneapolis police.

The Uptown incident was one of multiple shootings reported in the metro overnight:

– A woman was shot after an argument on the 1100 block of Olson Memorial Highway around 9:30 p.m. Saturday
– A man was shot multiple times, suffering life threatening injuries, outside a Crystal bar at around 2 a.m. Sunday
– Adult male critically wounded in shooting near 4th Precinct, incident happened shortly after 3:30 a.m. Sunday
– 2 men arrived at North Memorial Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries at 3:42 a.m. Sunday

2. It IS sad

I lived in St. Paul for 15 years so spent lots of time in Mpls. I really loved the Twin Cities. So many wonderful things happened there. Art, music, etc.

3. The Crystal one was Big Louie's Bar and Grill, 5216 W. Broadway

according to the video (a few seconds from the end) in –

A man was shot multiple times, suffering life threatening injuries, outside a Crystal bar at around 2 a.m. Sunday


Just east of Douglas Drive, not at all an area I associate with violence. I can't find diddly squat in a Google search of news.

Edited to add: a Google search on Crystal MN shooting

had a few hits.

A worthless (probably) You Tube video the morning (daylight) after -- I only watched 2 min of the 9:33 video

5. Holy Crap! 3 More Men Shot Monday Night Outside Big Louies in Crystal

https://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2020/06/23/3-more-men-shot-monday-night-outside-crystal-bar-all-expected-to-survive/
The Crystal Police Department says Monday’s shooting happened shortly before 10:30 p.m. outside Big Louie’s bar on the 5200 block of West Broadway.

At the scene, officers found two men, ages 25 and 29, with multiple gunshot wounds. Emergency crews brought them to a nearby hospital. A third man, 35, was driven to the hospital; he’d also been shot several times.

All three of the victims are expected to survive.

The shooting is under investigation. No arrests have been made, nor have police released information on possible suspects.

Over the weekend, another shooting outside the same bar left one man dead and another injured. Investigators are not sure if these two recent shootings in Crystal are related.


The TV news report mentions that it's near North Minneapolis which has been having a lot of shootings in the past few days ...

E.g. 9 Hurt In 3 Separate North Minneapolis Shootings Within 4 Hours, 950 pm 6/22/20
https://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2020/06/22/8-hurt-in-separate-n-mpls-shootings-within-2-hours/

I thought Big Louie's was kind of far from that scene, but I guess not.
