Minneapolis was struck with fear early Monday morning as two shootings occurred mere blocks from each other.
The first incident occurred, reportedly, around 2 am. According to Corey Schmidt, a spokesman for the Minneapolis Police, someone opened fire outside their downtown precinct. Officers who heard the shots responded immediately to find two men who had suffered gunshot wounds to the leg. The scene was quickly deemed a crime scene and a handgun was discovered in a nearby parking lot.
Only fifteen minutes later, officers heard the sounds of gunshots only a block away. When they arrived at the corner of Hennepin Avenue and 4th Street South they found four victims. Three men and one juvenile, all were wounded when they arrived.
