A 17-year-old boy was killed and two men were injured in a shooting late Friday in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis, police said.
The three were among six people shot Friday night in Minneapolis in three separate incidents. Police did not say if the incidents were related. No arrests have been made.
In the most recent shooting, just before midnight, police received a report of shots fired in the 300 block of S. Cedar Avenue. Meanwhile, an ambulance was flagged down in the 2100 block of Riverside Avenue.
By the time police arrived, two victims were in the ambulance — the teenage boy, who was pronounced dead, and a 21-year-old man suffering from a noncritical gunshot wound, police said. The latter was taken to HCMC.
A short time later, police said, a third person, a 31-year-old man, arrived at HCMC suffering from a noncritical gunshot wound from the same incident.
Earlier Friday night, two 20-year-old men were shot and wounded on the North Side. According to police, officers were investigating a ShotSpotter activation when a man called 911 to say he had been shot, offering no clear location. Area hospitals were advised of the call in case any gunshot victims came in. Shortly afterward, the two men arrived at HCMC in a vehicle, and officers interviewed them there.
The victims told police that they were driving on W. Broadway when they heard gunshots and realized they had been shot. They were unable to provide any further information, police said.
The first victim was shot in the leg, the second in the hand.
A few hours earlier, at 9:18 p.m., a 24-year-old man was shot and wounded in the 2900 block of S. Pillsbury Avenue, police said. He was taken to HCMC with several gunshot wounds to the upper body.
According to police, the victim was reportedly standing outside the Karmel Mall when a vehicle drove by and shots were fired from it.
Authorities have not identified any of the victims.
