Minneapolis 3rd Precinct Update - Shooting

This is an update from Inspector Gerlicher, 3rd Precinct Commander, Minneapolis Police Sep 14, 2006 1:49 PM:

A second shooting [Ed. - The first was the murder I've already reported] occurred late yesterday afternoon at the corner of 25th/Chicago. In this case, a 26 year old male who was speaking to another male at that location was shot in the arm by suspects in a vehicle. The injuries suffered in this case were not life threatening. Thankfully a witness was able to provide a vehicle description and license plate and within 45 minutes, 3rd precinct officers located the vehicle unoccupied at another location in the precinct. Also, 3rd precinct officers have since made two arrests in this case and recovered two handguns and we believe that we have identified all parties involved in the case. There could be additional arrests. This incident occurred adjacent to Children’s hospital and I have already spoken to their staff about the case.
