#30 - 2nd Minneapolis Murder In 24 Hour Period

News reports are filtering out about the 2nd Minneapolis murder in a 24 hour period. The Red Star leads with the most comprehensive coverage at the moment: "Man dies after Minneapolis shooting".

A man was fatally shot in south Minneapolis on Saturday afternoon during what appears to have been a home invasion, police said.

Officers called to a duplex on the 3300 block of 5th Avenue S. about 4 p.m. found a man in the ground-floor apartment who had been shot.

He was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. His name had not been released Saturday night.

Two other people in the duplex were treated at the scene for slight injuries after they jumped out of a ground-floor window to avoid the shooting, police said.
Things just ain't right in Minneapolis.

Think Senate candidate and part-time Hennepin County Attorney Amy Klobuchar is sleeping well at night? The criminals are running wild in Minneapolis.

And has anyone else noticed a marked increase in Minneapolis violence since the implementation of the good mayor's crime-fighting strategy?
