Woman killed in north Minneapolis shooting; 1 in custody

Police say a woman died Thursday afternoon in a shooting in Minneapolis’ Near North neighborhood.

At around 12:35 p.m., officers were called to a report of a shooting on Banneker Avenue North, not far from North 11th Avenue and Fremont Avenue, according to Minneapolis Police Public Information Officer Sgt. Garrett Parten.

There, officers found a woman in her 20s suffering from at least one life-threatening gunshot wound. Officers rendered aid but she died at the scene.

Late Thursday night, police announced a 23-year-old had been arrested and booked into the Hennepin County Jail for probable cause murder after a search warrant was issued for the 300 block of 27th Avenue North around 7 p.m.

The investigation is ongoing, but Parten said investigators don’t believe the public is in danger.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office will release the identity of the woman and her cause of death at a later time.

It’s the city’s 76th homicide of the year, according to police.
