Four violent incidents — two shootings and two stabbings — occurred early Monday in downtown Minneapolis around bar closing time, sending all of the victims to the hospital, authorities said.
None of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening, and no arrests have been made, police said.
According to police:
At 2:14 a.m., a 23-year-old Minneapolis woman was shot in the leg outside of Sex World in the 200 block of 2nd Avenue N. She waited inside the establishment for medical help to arrive and then was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC).
At 2:19 a.m., a 23-year-old man from Minneapolis was stabbed in the back during a fight in the street in the 400 block of 1st Avenue N.
About 20 minutes later, a 31-year-old St. Paul man who was shot in the arm showed up at HCMC. The man said the shooting occurred in the lobby of parking ramp B, not far from Target Field, and involved what started as a fistfight among himself and at least two other people.
Also, a 16-year-old boy was stabbed around 2 a.m. and went to HCMC for treatment. He said he was assaulted while riding his bicycle on the sidewalk near 5th Street and Hennepin Avenue S.
