Fun In Minneapolis

WCCO News reports the latest fun in Minneapolis: "Police Seek Three Who Fled Shooting, Car Accident".

(WCCO) Minneapolis Police are seeking three suspects they believe fled the scene of a shooting and car accident Saturday in Minneapolis.

The incident happened around 3:30 p.m. near 27th Street West and Pillsbury Avenue South.

Police say a suspect in a light-colored SUV fired shots at a green car.

The green car's driver then put the car in reverse and hit a parked car, authorities said.

The SUV left the scene and headed east on 27th Street, police said.

The person or persons in the green car fled the scene on foot.
Gunplay. Middle of the day.

It's all good in Minneapolis.

Meanwhile, in case you were thinking about testifying against murder defendants in Minneapolis: "Trial witness assaulted, police say".

A Minneapolis woman who was charged Friday with assault and witness tampering is accused of trying to keep her sister from testifying against defendants in the Penn Best Steak House homicide trial, which starts next week.

Teia S. Ayler, 25, was charged in Hennepin County District Court with first-degree witness tampering and second-degree assault. The charging complaint alleges that her ex-boyfriend had discussed paying Teda Ayler, a witness to the fatal shootings of two men, not to testify.
It sounds like the fireworks are already starting on this high-profile case.

After a detective contacted Teia Ayler on Thursday to find her ex-boyfriend, she went to the home of her sister, Teda Ayler, and told her she was angry that Teda was going to testify. Then Teia Ayler allegedly hit, kicked and threw grease on her sister and threatened her with a knife. Teia Ayler is in the county jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.
Time to build more jails.
