Latest victims of Minneapolis Quagmire ID'd

The police have identified the latest victims of "high risk" behavior in Minneapolis (Walking on sidewalk at 6 pm, arriving home at 7:30 pm, and existing in North Minneapolis are the 3 most current examples): "Police Identify Three Murder Victims".

(AP) Minneapolis The Hennepin County medical examiner released the names Tuesday of three homicide victims who died in apparently unrelated killings within two days in Minneapolis.

Victor Garma, 26, was stabbed to death around 7:30 p.m. Monday after he and a female friend arrived at his south Minneapolis townhouse to find four or five suspects burglarizing it.
. . .

About 90 minutes before Garma was killed, Jesse James Maynor III was fatally shot while walking down a street near his home in north Minneapolis.
. . .

Authorities said Janaya Nicole Allen, 20, of St. Paul, died at the hospital entrance as a result of a gunshot wound to the head. Police had said she was apparently shot in north Minneapolis. . .
So, the lessons in Minneapolis are: Don't come home unexpectedly, don't walk on the sidewalk near your home, and don't exist in North Minneapolis.

There is an APB for the getaway vehicle in the Pillsbury Aveune murder:

The suspects are believed to be driving the victim's SUV which is a white 1996 Ford Explorer with Minnesota License plates RDL-043. It's possible the vehicle has a different set of plates which are CFV-835.
An APB has also been issued for Minneapolis Mayor Ryback: Hello? Hello? Your city's residents and potential visitors would like some reassuring words now.
