University Avenue runs just outside the U of M and is host to all its main fraternity houses. It’s also home to the “Students’ Co-Op,” which is known for housing non-students and being a hub of violence in the area. The building’s owners evicted all of the residents after a string of crimes occurred around the property. However, the situation on frat row doesn’t appear to have de-escalated as a gun battle left a 15-year-old wounded early Saturday morning. Another person was struck by a car, according to Crime Watch Minneapolis.

Video of the incident was provided to both Alpha News and Crime Watch Minneapolis.

Crime Watch also posted the following diagram that outlines the apparent location of the shooter in the video relative to the rest of frat row.

Another pair of videos captured what sounds like gunshots from multiple shooters.

The university issued a statement about the violence, addressing the situation with the co-op, but not the shooting. The school said it “is aware of the issues at 1721 University Avenue SE,” where the co-op is located.

“It’s our understanding no current U of M students or employees live at the property,” the statement continued. The school also confirmed that the eviction process has been completed by the sheriff’s department, that the building has been boarded up and that campus police “will now regularly be checking the building to ensure that no one has gained access.”
