One dead, 11 injured in first shooting since Minneapolis voted to defund its police department



New York Daily News

A dozen people were shot, including one fatally, early Sunday morning when at least one gunman opened fire in Minneapolis.

The shooting began around 12:40 a.m. Sunday when police responded to calls about gunfire along Hennepin Avenue, according to the Minneapolis Police Department.

Police initially reported 10 victims, then upgraded the number to 12 around 4 a.m.

None of the victims have been officially identified, but the person killed was male, police said.

The other 11 have non-life threatening injuries.

The windows of a shoe store and the Uptown Theatre were shot out, according to social media photos.

Alyssa Tyson told the Star Tribune that her 23-year-old daughter, Taija, had been shot twice; one bullet hit her femur bone and another grazed her arm.

“The young lady who was with my daughter said it was, like, 80 shots,” Tyson said.

“I’m just pretty much speechless. That’s a lot of people’s lives that are about to be changed, and for one person, that’s no more Christmases, no more birthdays.”

It’s unclear how many suspects were involved in the shooting but no arrests have been made yet.

At least 19 people were shot overall in various incidents in Minneapolis Saturday and overnight Sunday.
