With 2 more homicides, violent crime edges up in Minneapolis

The fatal shootings of a young man in north Minneapolis Wednesday night and a woman at a south Minneapolis bus stop late Tuesday were the latest episodes in a year in which violent crime in the city has reached levels not seen in nearly a decade.

The two slayings were the city’s 36th and 37th homicides of the year.

With the latest fatalities, Minneapolis is on pace to log its largest number of homicides since 2007, when 47 people were killed in the city.
