Minneapolis Murder

The Red Star reports yet another murder in Minneapolis; an early start to a day of violence in the city (see next post): "Man found fatally shot in south Minneapolis".

A man was found shot to death shortly before 2 a.m. today in south Minneapolis, police said.

Police were responding to a call of shots fired in the area of Lake Street and 21st Avenue S., when they found the victim behind an apartment building. The man was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center, where he died.
No arrests have been made. There's no word of suspects. There is no indication if this ocurred in the Safe Zone or the Red Zone.

Call the tip line at #612-692-8477 (or 911) if you have information.

So is violence in Minneapolis really "news" anymore?
