MPD: Man killed in Minneapolis Sunday morning shot in Downtown, not Uptown
Tuesday, Minneapolis Police said an investigation showed the man who died after getting shot in the city early Sunday morning was actually shot in Downtown, not Uptown as originally believed.
The department said it initially was informed that numerous people had been shot and many were transported to hospitals by ambulances but some were taken by private vehicles. Police said many patients arrived around the same time and officers initially believed they all came from the Uptown shooting. However, the most critical patient was unconscious and died at the hospital.
Investigators said additional information and investigation now indicates the man was shot in Downtown and not Uptown. Police said no shots fired calls were reported Downtown between 12:30 a.m. and 1 a.m., which is when the man is believed to have been shot.
Police said they believe the shooting occurred in the area of Seventh Street North and First Avenue North.
The correction means a total of 11 people were shot in the Uptown incident, all in their 20s, and all suffering non-life-threatening injuries.
A separate case has now been opened regarding the shooting in Downtown Minneapolis.
Monday, family members identified the victim of the shooting as Cody C. Pollard.
