20 Gunshots And Another Minneapolis Murder

More violence in Minneapolis; is it really news anymore?

Chao Xiong of the Red Star reports: "Minneapolis shooting leaves 1 dead, 1 injured".

One man was killed and another was wounded Thursday evening at 35th and Penn Avenues N. in Minneapolis.

Capt. Rich Stanek said police officers were called after a report of shots fired about 6:25 p.m. on the border of the Cleveland and Folwell neighborhoods.
One down and one survivor - right in prime time.

Jerry Ciesco, who lives on Penn, said he heard about 20 gunshots around 6:30 pm.

In general, there is a lot of activity around the area, he said.

"I get propositioned all the time for drugs," he said. "After dark it's a little scary."
Criminals are bad shots, but the downside is they keep shooting until the "get it right", which appears to be what happened here. It doesn't matter, because anything goes in Mayor Rybak's Minneapolis.

The Minneapolis Quagmire deepens, with no end in sight.
