A man was killed and a woman injured during an early morning shooting Saturday in north Minneapolis, authorities said.
Officers responded to a ShotSpotter activation around 3 a.m. in the 1100 block of W. Broadway, where they found a man with a gunshot wound.
Paramedics from North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale pronounced the victim dead at the scene.
Around the same time, police were notified that a woman injured in the shooting had been dropped off at Hennepin County Medical Center in downtown Minneapolis with a noncritical gunshot wound to her left arm.
The medical examiner's office will release the identity of the dead man following family notification.
No one has been arrested, police said.
The shooting occurred in a parking lot behind Hook Fish & Chicken and Cookie Cart — an area with a troubled history. Last July, gunfire erupted during a large gathering there, killing a 24-year-old man and wounding two others. A memorial still marks the spot of the man's death in that surface lot.
A similar party was in swing Saturday morning when shots rang out. A bullet pierced the mobile police camera stationed in the lot.
This mark's the city's 21st homicide of the year. No arrests have been made.
Pastor Harding Smith, founder and head of the Spiritual Church of God in Robbinsdale, organized an afternoon vigil at the strip mall across the street. Smith can often be found on the streets of north Minneapolis demanding an end to gun violence.
Police estimate that there are 20 to 25 gangs operating out of the city. Several crews have banded together to form two larger factions, the High End and Low End, their territory roughly divided by West Broadway.
However, authorities did not specify whether Saturday's shooting was considered gang-related.
Once one of the city's major commercial hubs, West Broadway has struggled to attract new businesses beyond strip malls and fast food joints.
Local revitalization efforts have North Siders dreaming about building a dry cleaner, movie theater and FedEx center along the corridor. But the challenge in attracting the kind of investment residents want lies in the persistent crime along West Broadway.
City Council President Barb Johnson has pushed for more surveillance along the strip in an effort to combat public safety concerns. Many area businesses rely on foot traffic, she said, and those customers must feel safe parking their cars and getting off the bus to continue coming back.
Mayor Betsy Hodges' office recently spearheaded a grant program to fund community-led public safety efforts.
