Shooting In Minneapolis 3rd Precinct

The Minneapolis Police SAFE Unit has issued a release following a shooting in the previously-safe Kingfield neighborhood of Minneapolis:

I have received a number of inquiries about what was going on, on the 3900 block of 1st Ave S. in the Kingfield Neighborhood today.

This morning there was a shooting in the 3rd Precinct, at 4145 5th Av S. There was a possibility that the suspect from that shooting was staying on the 3900 block of 1st Av S. Officers and SWAT contained the area and did a search of the suspected address. The suspect was not at the address. One adult male was arrested for having a felony warrant, from 3900 1st Av S as a result of this incident.
