Minneapolis tackles downtown challenge: Shooters undeterred by police


Minneapolis officials say they’ve come up against a new kind of challenge in their fight against late-night crime downtown: people unafraid to fire guns even on blocks packed with bar patrons and dotted with dozens of police officers.

Wednesday, in a meeting of the City Council’s Public Safety Committee, council members quizzed Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman and the top cop from the city’s downtown police precinct on the Sept. 12 shooting that injured six people. Two men have been arrested in the shooting, which littered the street near the Hennepin Avenue light-rail station with 27 bullet casings and took place among a crowd that included at least 18 uniformed police officers.
