Gun violence again flared in Minneapolis over the weekend, leaving at least five people recovering from gunshot wounds in separate incidents, police said.
In the most recent shooting, a 21-year-old St. Paul man was in the area of N. 30th and Aldrich avenues about 2 p.m. Sunday when an unidentified gunman shot him in the leg, he told police.
The victim was dropped off by friends at North Memorial Medical Center, where a bullet fragment was removed from his leg in surgery, according to an incident report.
Police said the victim offered only a vague account of the shooting, which wasn't detected by the area's ShotSpotter system, but they were still investigating the incident.
Earlier that morning, a 28-year-old woman was shot at an apartment building next to the Minneapolis Convention Center, near the corner of E. 15th Street and 1st Avenue S., according to police.
The wounded woman, who was struck in the abdomen, was taken to a nearby hospital, where her condition was not immediately known.
Detectives on Monday continued to investigate the shooting, which occurred about 2:18 a.m.
In the other shootings:
• About 9:54 p.m. Saturday, a 44-year-old woman was shot in the 5800 block of Washburn Avenue S.
• About 2:11 a.m. Saturday, two victims — a 22-year-old Chicago man and a 32-year-old man from Minneapolis — were struck by gunfire in the 400 block of 3rd Avenue N.
There have been no arrests in any of the shootings, police said.
Between Friday night and Saturday night, police responded to at least four other shootings in which houses were fired upon but no one was injured.
