Minneapolis Shooting

The Minneapolis Police SAFE Unit has issued a dispatch regarding a shooting from Monday night. It's unclear whether this is a separate incident from the multiple shootings I reported on here. If it's the same incident (or one of them), then it does provide more detail:

On Monday June 26, 2006 at about 11:44 pm, there was an Assault 1 at 4516 Stevens Av S. The victim was shot twice, and has what appears to be non-life threatening injuries.

Two females were sitting inside a car, parked in front of 4516 Stevens Av S. Another vehicle pulled up and shot multiple times into the parked car. The victim was struck twice. The suspect vehicle is described as a red SUV type vehicle, newer model. The victim was not a resident of the area.
This is not a bad area of town, although it is somewhat of a crossroads from various parts of the city. Nearby is a gas station on Nicollet and 46th which was the site of a gangland execution killing last year. It's also not far from the Tangletown neighborhood, one of the most desireable areas of the city.

In other words, it's dangerous out there in the Minneapolis Quagmire.
