6 hurt, 3 seriously, after overnight gunfire in Minneapolis

At least six people were injured — three seriously — after gunfire erupted in downtown Minneapolis early Saturday morning.

Minneapolis police say it happened on Hennepin Avenue shortly after 2:30 a.m.

Officers first heard automatic gunfire in the 400 block of Hennepin Avenue South and found a man in his 20s suffering from what police called potentially life-threatening gunshot wounds.

The man was taken to a hospital and additional officers were called to help manage an uncooperative crowd.

Minutes later, officers responded to a reported shooting in the 800 block of Hennepin Avenue.

There, officers found a man in his 30s, a woman in her late 20s and a man in his 50s all suffering from gunshot wounds. According to police, the woman’s injuries were not life-threatening while the men both suffered potentially life-threatening injuries.

All three were taken to a hospital for treatment.

A short time later, a man and woman, each in their 20s, showed up at the hospital with apparent non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.

Police say they’re still working to determine if the two shootings are related.

No arrests had been made as of Saturday morning.
