Out Of Control - 2nd Shooting At Minneapolis Murder Site And More

KARE 11 News reports the almost unbelieveable (were it not Minneapolis) occurrence of a second shooting at the site of last Sunday's murder. There has also been another shooting, reulting in the 41st murder victim of the year in Minneapolis.

Minneapolis police are investigating a deadly shooting overnight on the city's south side, and a non-fatal shooting at the same site as a killing Monday.

Police say a metro transit bus driver spotted a man lying on the ground at Nicollet Avenue and west 24th Street around 2:00 a.m. Tuesday.

When officers arrived, they found the man shot to death.
In addition to that crime, armed thugs went back to the site of Sunday's murder and beat and shot one of the occupants:

Same Address, another shooting

Police are investigating a shooting at the same north Minneapolis home where a pizza delivery man was killed Sunday night.

Resident Qunisha Bishop told reporters three men broke in through the back door early Tuesday, hit her boyfriend over the head and shot him in the leg.

She says robbery was the motive. Her boyfriend has been hospitalized.

It's not clear if there's any connection to Sunday's fatal shooting of Pizza Hut delivery driver Toua Xiong outside the same house.

The owners of the Pizza Hut where Xiong worked have put up a $25,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of the killer.

Police believe the shooter was in a group of three to five young men who might have been bent on robbery. But they ran from the scene without taking the victim's cash.
Welcome to the Minneapolis Quagmire. It defies belief. It also begs a question: Who owns the streets in Minneapolis?
