Woman dies at hospital more than a week after being shot in downtown Minneapolis

Minneapolis police reported Saturday that a woman died at a hospital from a gunshot wound she sustained in downtown Minneapolis 10 days earlier.

Officers responded to the shooting near the intersection of 9th Street South and Nicollet Mall, near the downtown Target store at about 5:45 p.m. on Aug. 10.

Police said they found a woman in her mid-20s with a life-threatening gunshot wound, and she was brought to the hospital by ambulance.

Monday, the woman was identified by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner as 25-year-old Shawna Starr Campbell.

Investigators believe that gunshots were fired after a verbal altercation between two women.

A shooting suspect, identified as 23-year-old Perishea Young, turned herself in after the shooting and is currently in custody, according to the Minneapolis Police Department. Officers say they also recovered a gun.

Young is charged with one count of second-degree murder. Her next court appearance is set for Sept. 15.

This is the 59th death in Minneapolis that is being investigated as a homicide in 2022.
