A shooting in downtown Minneapolis killed two people and wounded eight others early Saturday. The victims were five men and five women. Seven wounded people had injuries not considered to be life-threatening. The gunfire stemmed from two men in a crowd who got into an argument, pulled out guns and started shooting. It was at the time when crowds were leaving the bars at closing time, in the area of the 300 block of North First Avenue. Cops were nearby when they heard the sound of gunshots just before 2 a.m. Police described “an exceptionally chaotic scene.”The names of the victims and suspects have not been publicly released. There were no immediate reports of arrests in the case. Additional law enforcement agencies have been called in to help with the investigation.
Police said order had been restored and that a Medical Examiner would release the identity of the victims, along with the nature and cause of death in the days to come. Sorry to say this, but such incidents are a common fact in America. Firearms can’t be stopped to produce victims, every day. Elsewhere in Minneapolis overnight, one person died and at least three other people were wounded in other shootings. The number of homicides in Minneapolis in the first eight months of 2020 has surpassed the number of homicides in all of the previous year. „Every time, you don’t know if it’s a firework, a gunshot, you don’t know what it is, but I’m jumping like I’m in a war zone. That’s how we feel, like we’re in a war zone. Are you serious? This is not okay,” declared a resident.
