4th teen arrested after shooting, store robbery in Minneapolis
Friday, Minneapolis police announced a fourth suspect was arrested in connection with a robbery and shooting at a store in the Bryn Mawr neighborhood of Minneapolis.
The Minneapolis Police Department said officers responded to a robbery call at Bryn Mawr Market at 11:31 a.m. Wednesday.
When they arrived, officers found a 20-year-old woman, a store cashier, who’d been shot in the foot and torso. She was taken to a hospital for surgery and remained in serious but stable condition.
Officers learned four suspects tried to rob the store and, when the woman couldn’t open the cash register, one reportedly shot her in the foot. As they were leaving the store, one suspect shot the woman in the torso and another punched her in the face, police said. Police said the suspects left in a vehicle that investigators learned was previously stolen in a St. Paul carjacking.
Thursday, police said that within eight hours of the initial report, they located and arrested three suspects—ages 14, 15 and 16—in connection with the incident. Friday, police said they also arrested a 17-year-old suspect.
The 17-year-old suspect was transported to the city’s juvenile detention center. All four suspects have been booked for probable cause second-degree assault and probable cause aggravated robbery.
Police said the four individuals are being investigated for possible involvement in multiple robberies and carjackings in Minneapolis.
As of Friday afternoon, a GoFundMe established to help the Bryn Mawr Market and the injured cashier had raised over $24,000.
