Two teenagers were shot and wounded Saturday in north Minneapolis’ Folwell neighborhood, police said, continuing a spate of gun violence across the city in recent days.
Their injuries were not considered life-threatening, police said.
At least eight people have been shot in Minneapolis since Thursday, mostly on the city’s North Side.
About 1:15 p.m. Saturday, officers went to the intersection of Lowry and Emerson avenues N. after the city’s ShotSpotter network picked up 16 gunshots fired there, according to police and scanner reports. A witness told police that two people had emerged from a nearby salon only moments before the shooting, the reports said.
One suspect was dressed in all white and had on a red hat; the other had on a white T-shirt and dark pants. At least one of the men was seen getting into a gray or blue Chevrolet, which fled westbound on Lowry, according to the reports.
A short time later, two victims, ages 17 and 18, were dropped off separately at North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale, said police spokesman Corey Schmidt. Both declined to cooperate with investigators, according to Schmidt.
No arrests were announced as of Saturday afternoon.
