Three people were killed and at least nine others were injured in separate incidents over the weekend in Minneapolis.
The violence began Friday afternoon around 4:35 p.m. when police responded to a report of a dead person in the 1700 block of Dupont Avenue South. They arrived to find a deceased adult male in his 70s inside a residence with multiple stab wounds, police said in a press release. An adult female was also transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police said they believe the incident may have been a “domestic altercation” and the two parties were known to each other.
After she was released from the hospital, police said Maria Angela Palen was booked into Hennepin County Jail on probable cause murder.
Later that night, around 10:15 p.m., police responded to a mass shooting on the 2200 block of 16th Avenue South where they found multiple people with gunshot wounds.
One adult male in his 30s died at the scene. Five others — an adult male with a potentially life-threatening gunshot wound, three adult males with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds, and an adult female with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound — were taken to the hospital. Another adult male with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound self-transported to Abbott Northwestern, police said.
Police said several adults were gathered in a backyard when two suspects walked up the alley and began shooting. They then fled from the scene. According to reports, the individuals were gathered in the yard for a punk concert. Police are still searching for the suspects.
On Sunday night around 8:15 p.m., police responded to a report of a shooting at a multi-family residence on the 1500 block of Nicollet Avenue. Responding officers found two adult males in their 20s with gunshot wounds — one with a life-threatening gunshot wound and the other with potentially life-threatening gunshot wounds. They also located an 18-year-old female with potentially life-threatening gunshot wounds. The adult male with a life-threatening gunshot wound died at the hospital.
Police said the incident may have been the result of a “previous altercation.” No arrests have been made.
A Minneapolis police officer was also injured by automatic gunfire in an incident Friday night, Alpha News previously reported. Four people were taken into custody.
